3D TV

A TV set that renders stereoscopic 3D content using active or passive eyeglass technology. Active 3D TVs use shutter glasses that synchronize with the TV set to open and close each lens at the right time. Passive 3D TVs use less costly polarized glasses that separate the stereo frames by polarization.
