3D HDTV In A Nutshell

Updated on April 9, 2011

One of the most popular types of television sets that are being introduced today is the 3D HDTV set. Since these products are just being introduced, it is but natural that the prices of these 3D HDTV sets are downright prohibitive. Just it is the latest in digital technology, it doesn’t mean you can buy it on impulse, take time to distinguish the different kinds of 3D HDTV sets.

High definition television is the newest generation of electronic digital TV. You can boast of the quality graphics of HDTV as four times better than the current ones that are being sold. Due to the high definition television’s features, excellent graphic detail, vivid colors, and sharp imagery, it takes watching a television program into a whole new experience. As for 3D HDTV, the technology relies on stereoscopy’s principle where the depth of an image creates an optical illusion.

Representing a pair of perspectives on the same object, and providing the eyes with different images can improve depth perception. There would be minor deviation in the perspectives that the eyes take in binocular vision. There are three kinds of 3D TV technology, when the viewer uses vintage red and blue gasses, that is the anaglyph, when the viewer is using glasses at the IMAX theaters, that is polarized technology, the one currently being used in 3D HDTV is called active technology.

Before buying a 3D HDTV, check first if you are purchasing a full 3D HDTV or a ready 3D HDTV because purchasing the latter requires you to buy some more accessories to get the 3D experience on your television.

There is a different and latest format that is being used by full 3D HDTV for delivering 3D content for its viewers. Different 3D HDTV has proper and compatible consumer electronics and 3D glasses that come with the set. Since this technology is still in its infancy, there are no industry standard glasses that are manufactured yet, you have to rely on what the manufacturers specify.

The 3D ready HDTV needs an adapter to get your HDTV display 3D content. The adapters are a requirement for those ready 3D HDTV bought before March of 2010. Without the 3D starter kit and adapter, you would end up watching great 2D visuals but never experience the 3D technology.

Technology is always improving, and soon other multimedia gadgets would go the 3D route so better get one 3D HDTV now so you can be ready for tomorrow.
