CES 2010: XpanD 3D Glasses Communicate With TV Via Bluetooth

Marking the first time ever that active-shutter 3D glasses technology has been effectively coupled with Bluetooth connectivity, XpanD has just joined American HD TV maker VIZIO and SENSIO to debut at CES an advanced 3D HDTV solution for VIZIO’s new Pro range of XVT HD3D televisions. This new series of VIZIO HDTVs features an active 3D implementation, enabling them to display 3D content that can be viewed only with XpanD glasses.

The XpanD active-shutter glasses communicate with VIZIO Full HD3D TVs via Bluetooth, then transform each lens from opaque to transparent in synchronization with the images displayed on the television, delivering the full frame rate capable by the TV.

VIZIO XVT Pro Full HD3D televisions can produce 3D images from encoded material on conventional DVD and Blu-ray players, as well as from emerging distribution channels such as streaming media, pay per view, video on demand, and HDTV broadcasts. XpanD’s active-shutter glasses are designed to uniquely feature the highest-speed LCD lenses, lowest crosstalk and the highest viewing angle.
