3D HD TV: the next generation in TV Viewing

I’m sure you have been hearing a lot about 3D HD TV. Even in the movies, films can now be shown in full 3D. Is the 3D HD TV the next big thing?
Well the answer to that depends on whether or not people are about to embrace this technology. Watching 3D HD TV is not like your regular HD TV viewing. You have to wear 3D glasses, though not the kind of glasses that’s made from cardboard frames and used during the early periods. 3D glasses nowadays are quite state of the art. Each lens is actually an LCD that has a fully electronic shutter (also called “active shutter”.
One confusing aspect about 3D HD TV is whether it is the same as HD TV. 3D HD TV is basically the same as HD TV in terms of basic HD features. The main highlight of an 3D TV is that it is capable of displaying 3D media.
Most 3D films are burned in Blu-Ray disc. That’s because Blu-Ray disc is capable of storing a huge amount of 3D film, which actually takes twice the size of a regular HD film. In the case of a 3D TV, the internal design is quite complex. It is capable of displaying images separately at 1080p for each viewer’s eye. It also has a 120 fpm frame rate, which again is divided into 60 frames for each eye. At a refresh rate of 100hz minimum, it has an internal chip that decodes the left and right image and passes it to a transmitter. This transmitter would then pass the decoded image to the 3D glasses.
Investing in a 3D HD TV can be quite expensive. For people who want to experience the power of 3D viewing, they are more than willing to spend more than a thousand dollars the the 3D HD TV and it accessories like 3D glasses and Blu-Ray player.
