So, the big problem with active 3D glasses is that they’re just too bulky and expensive, right? Well, what if you could use them on your active 3D TV? Would that change everything? Samsung thinks so which is why they’re teaming up with RealD and licensing new technology that will allow that to happen. With this, you’ll be able to snag the inexpensive passive 3D specs and use them on your active set. This will definitely alter the game, and honestly, end it.
LG has been arguing the case for passive 3D technology for quite some time. However, the passive screens don’t offer up quite the same visuals that active 3D TVs can. The price is what kept them in the game, but that contingency seems to have been remedied with Samsung’s new union with RealD. How can they do it? The answer isn’t as difficult as one would imagine.
Samsung is basically taking the active shutter technology and adding it to their screens instead of the glasses. We’re still a bit hazy regarding exactly how they will implement this and when we can expect the technology to go live, but with Samsung already leading the pack in terms of 3D technology and sales, this should deliver a crushing blow in the ongoing battles between the two 3D technologies. What’s your opinion on this? Are they making the right move?
