While we are used to see 3D movies only in the cinema, now you can buy a TV set that will allow you to watch your favorite shows, movies and sports games in 3D technology to offer you the highest quality experience in the comfort of your home.
Simply putting it 3D TV is an optical illusion that is created by the combination of the TV set and the 3D glasses.Then the picture from this mix is processed by your brain that is tricked into thinking that you see the picture in 3D manner when in the reality you are looking at completely flat image.
The brain can be tricked mainly because of the 3D glasses. Each of the lenses on these glasses are a bit different so with each of your eyes you will see as bit different picture. But when you are looking through the glasses with both evey at the same time your brain process this lens combination and create the illusion that the picture you are seeing have depth and other different effect that create the 3D feel.
When it comes to the term 3D TV it can be referred either to all of the devices that are necessary to watch the picture in 3D or to all of the different content that can be watched in 3D.
Nowadays you can see quite a lot of TV sets that have this 3D feature built inside of them but there again are also my different kind and level 3D technologies that are put in these TV sets. Based on your budget you can chose from cheaper to very expensive TVs to enjoy the 3D effect.
One of the most common and also the best 3D technology specifically for TVs is the Active Shutter 3D TV, because this kind of technologie will show you each and every pixel of the TV in 3D, formating film into 3D. This will let you really see and experience all the benefits from 3D.
One thing though that you have to keep in mind is the fact that most TV sets come with only two to four 3D glasses if they come with any at all. So when you purchase 3D TV make sure you have 3D glasses, because without them you won’t be able to see the 3D effect.
Also there are some TVs that don’t need the 3D glasses for you to watch 3D content on them, because they have installed similar glass as the 3D glasses have right on the TV to alter the image. But these kind of TV sets right now are pretty low in resolution and also these TVs cento be properly viewed only from the front as the glass and screen combination won’t work right if you are looking at it from the side. In future this kind of technology will become better and eventually dominate the 3D TV market but for right now I suggest sticking to TVs that need to use the 3D glasses to watch content in 3D.
