The TV Manufacturing Giants Agree to Make Universal 3D Glasses

Pansonic, Samsung, Sony, and XpanD came together to agree upon, making universal 3D glasses that will be compatible with all their 3D TV models.  This is great news for TV Lift Cabinet Owners who have 3D TVs.

Currently, 3D TV owners are faced with a great hurdle.  If they want friends and family to come over to watch a movie or game, they must provide them with glasses.  What 3D TV owner is going to buy more than four pairs of 3D glasses valued at $100 a piece?  It doesn’t make economical sense.  In addition to that, even if their other friends have their own pair of 3D glasses, those glasses are still going to need to be compatible with their TV model.  Talk about a frustration experience – to have such great visual technology and no easy way to share it with friends and family.

This is why 3D TVs sales have not skyrocketed as quickly as the flat panel TV.  Price and convenience dictate the consumer market.  It was evident that something needed to be done.  XpanD took the initiative and signed a deal with Panasonic to create a standard for infrared systems.  They are also beginning to lower the cost of 3D glasses.  Recently, consumers have been able to purchase Samsung’s 3D glasses for as low as $50.

While most consumers prefer to not have to wear glasses, at least for the time being consumers can get a pair of standard 3D glasses that will work on any 3D TV.  For consumers who refuse to buy a 3D TV because of the glasses, you may not have to wait long to skip the glasses altogether.  Manufacturers are making 3D TVs that require no glasses to enjoy the visual quality.  It may be some time before these glasses-free 3D TVs become mainstream and affordable to the general public but if you are not in a hurry, it may be worthwhile just waiting.

Consumers are not sold on 3D TV

Recently, I was browsing for the latest technology news and I stumbled across an article that exactly reflected my feelings on 3D TV.  Personally, I think the technology is exciting however I’m not convinced that it is something I’d want for my TV lift cabinet.  Between the price and the extra gadgets (namely, the glasses), it just doesn’t appeal to me. I’m perfectly happy with my HD TV. Apparently, I am not alone.

The article I’m referring to is on CNET.com and it discusses why people do not want 3D TV. The manufacturers say CNET hasn’t done enough to convince consumers that this is something they should have.  However according to CNET, the cost of 3D TVs and having to wear the dreaded glasses is proving to be an unfavorable combination for consumers.

When I watch TV, I want to collapse on the couch, turn on the TV and relax. I might have my laptop on my lap while I simultaneously browse the web. I don’t want to have to put on my 3D glasses to watch my favorite shows. I also like the freedom of going back and forth between my computer and TV. The glasses would complicate my ability to multi-task. Prime example – I often watch TV from my kitchen while cooking or doing dishes and the glasses would interfere. The same concerns I have are shared by many consumers, as is evident in the CNET article.

Do you already have a 3D TV?  If so, I would like to hear from you!  I’m curious to hear what current 3D TV owners think and if they’re happy with their decision to move on from HD TV.  Who knows, I could be persuaded…

Xpand 3D Makes High Quality 3D Glasses Affordable

Nearly 50 3D movies are expected to hit US theaters this year, making the US the number one provider of 3D entertainment. Although many will be watching these 3D masterpieces at home in front of their TV lift cabinets, with their own pair of stylish 3D glasses, theater owners have long been looking for a way to offer their customers the same quality and comfort as an at-home viewing, without investing too heavily in thousands of disposable 3D glasses. The answer, now, is Xpand, a leader in active 3D technologies for home, cinema and education.

Xpand just released its award-winning, cinema-grade X101 3D glasses, and now cinema owners can provide top-quality reusable 3D glasses without breaking the bank. Each pair runs around $35 and can be used comfortably for up to 5,000 shows. The glasses’ viewing angles have been optimized, so patrons can sit wherever they wish in the theater and enjoy a clear 3D image. Hot spots, usually created by 2D movie presentations will no longer interrupt 3D move-watchers, thanks to the technology found in these glasses.

The Xpand X101 3D glasses are also optimized to work with all Texas Instruments DLP Cinema chips and they allow DC projectors to be at normal lamp setting – extending lamp life by as much as 80 percent. The included batteries will last for up to 300 hours and can be replaced by anyone with an Xpand battery key. The glasses also come with a 10-year warranty.

For security purposes, the Xpand X101 glasses come with a standard EAS anti-theft tag device. Xpand has built its reputation by providing 3D glasses and technology for some of the largest and most prestigious cinemas in the world, and their products have been used by millions of satisfied movie-goers in over 3,000 3D cinemas in more than 50 countries.

Xpand is also the only manufacturer of 3D glasses which work with all 3DTV brands, models, 3D computers, 3D gaming consoles and cinemas.
