(1) Using some form of, or a greater amount of, electronic processing in a device. For example, "active 3D" glasses contain circuits that constantly synchronize with the monitor in contrast to "passive 3D" glasses that perform no processing. Active matrix displays have a transistor for each subpixel in contrast to their passive matrix counterpart, which uses far fewer transistors. See active 3D and active matrix. Contrast with passive.
