3D TV Facts
3D imagery is also known as stereoscopy. It was first invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone. The basic concept is quite simple. Two cameras are used to take the same picture from different angles. It is a way of mimicking reality. It creates an optical illusion that tricks our mind to think that what we see is real when it’s not. TV manufacturers used a new technology called Active Shutter to accomplish 3D on their television sets. It has battery operated glasses with an infrared receiver so that they can be synced to the 3D TV. These glasses help each eye to see the correct image.
Fun Facts: –
- 3D compatibility is a feature that allows high-end LED, LCD, and Plasma TVs to display specially made in 3D videos.
- You will require a 3D TV along with 3D source device, 3D glasses, and also 3D video content.
- 3D is an additional option and not a fully functional feature of a TV.
- 3D TV technology works in two ways which are Active and Passive. Active Technology requires specialized glasses bout Passive Technology does not.
- Active 3D was first introduced widely in 2010 and Passive 3D was introduced in the year 2011.
- The Polarized 3D is one of the most common systems to reconstruct the images and video.
- You should use 3D glasses of the same brand as your TV is to ensure the compatibility.
- These 3D glasses are built around the LCD technology and look slightly tinted.
- A few people suffer from ‘stereo blindness’. This is a situation in which the person cannot perceive the depth dimension of 3D representations.
- 3D videos can cause discomfort to people with this situation.
