LG to Launch 3D TVs with Passive Glasses

I’ve already tested the LG Infinia 55LX9500 which has active 3D glasses and to be honest, they gave me quite a headache. However, Electronista says that LG will be unveiling their LW6500 range of 3D TVs with passive glasses at CES 2011. These passive glasses work along with the new film on LCD screens, making it a lot easier to accept 3D imagery. The end result is apparently improved by a large margin, as this technology produces a brighter, more flicker-free image that reduces the crosstalk from the two parts of the stereoscopic image. This obviously means less blurring, which in turn equals less chance of you getting a headache while watching 3D content. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Keeping headaches away?

No headaches and clearer 3d imaging aren’t the only good things that come with these new glasses, as passive technology also means that the glasses will be lighter and cheaper. LG also claims that the viewing angle will be greatly increased with these glasses, and that 3D viewing will be possible at almost any angle. Although LG hasn’t given out too many details about the LW6500 series, they have mentioned that they will be available in four sizes; 42, 47, 55 and 65-inch. For more details, we’ll just have to wait for the LG’s CES 2011 press events, where they will surely reveal more about their new 3D TVs.
