There are many popular brands that are producing these televisions. If you are not sure whether you are ready to purchase a 3D television, then read below to find out the benefits.

How Does 3D TV Work?

It is important before purchasing a 3D TV to find out how it works and what makes it different from a standard television. All traditional televisions function in 2D, which show height and width. A 3D TV allows viewers to watch television in height, width and depth.

The concept of 3D TV comes from the human anatomy.

Basically, our eyes are set about seven centimeters apart. Each eye captures a different image as each eye views an image from a different angle. Once the brain receives these images, they are blended together to create a sense of depth. Basically, the same is done to create this technology.

Two different images are used, one for each eye, of the same scene. When the 3D television glasses are worn, the images are fused and it becomes a single 3D image. Not everyone is able to see 3D images because they suffer from stereo blindness. However, this only happens to a small percentage of the population and is rather uncommon.

Tech Talk

There are three types of 3D technologies to choose from which include anaglyph, stereoscopic passive polarised and stereoscopic active. The best is to use stereoscopic active technology for 3D television viewing.

You can choose one of these great technologies when you order your new television which can handle the capacity of 3D technology. If you do not want to watch your television in 3D, then no problem - you can always revert back to watching television in 2D. You will still receive exceptional television quality and picture while watching in 2D mode.

There are four brands that currently manufacture 3D TVs: Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Sony. However, it probably won't take long for other manufacturers to follow.

These televisions all differ, so it will be up to you to make the choice as to which is better for you. The Samsung offers three-dimensional capabilities on LED, LCD and plasma televisions. The LG and SONY televisions offer 3D on LED and LCD televisions, while Panasonic only offers 3D TV on plasma screens.
