Is 3D TV For You?

Posted: January 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

One of the newest, and at the same time oldest, technologies on the market is 3D TV. 3D is starting to become more and more popular, so I will tell you a little more about it.

The first thing to know about 3D TV is that you do NOT always have to wear the glasses to watch TV. The only time you have to wear glasses is when you are watching a 3D program.  If you are not watching a 3D program then you do not have to wear glasses.

The next thing to know about this technology is that it is broadcast in many different forms. The most popular form is called checkerboard. This will not matter a whole lot when looking for a 3D TV, but if you see that term being used you will know what it means. Also, the glasses you will need for these TV’s are not cheap. They cost about $150 a piece. This is because they are battery operated and they electronically switch each lens on and off to give you a 3D image. This 3D technology is much better than the red and blue filtered glasses that most people are familiar with.

One major concern about 3D TV is the amount of content that is actually in 3D. There are under 20 movies and only a couple of channels in 3D. However, by the end of the year there will be much more content available. The cost of a 3D TV will range from about $1500 in a 46” to $3000 in a 55”.

I hope this information helps. Leave a comment to request more information.
