Explaining The “3D” In 3D HDTV

Digital technology is introducing one of their new innovations and that is the 3D HDTV set. Since these products are just being introduced, it is but natural that the prices of these 3D HDTV sets are downright prohibitive. Before buying 3D HDTV though, you should have an idea what are 3D HDTV sets.

If you happen to be browsing at electronics stores, you would notice that the high definition television is the latest generation of electronic digital TV. The quality graphics of the HDTV alone is four times better than the ones that are currently on the rack. When watching high definition television you would notice the highly clear and excellent graphic detail, vivid colors and sharp imagery for a better visual experience. 3D HDTV technology is very dependent of stereoscopy’s principle wherein an optical illusion is created with depth in an image. Representing a pair of perspectives on the same object, and providing the eyes with different images can improve depth perception. There would be little deviation equal to the perspectives in what both eyes receive in binocular vision. It is good to know about the three types of 3D TV technology, from the basic anaglyph technology, wherein the viewer still used the classic red and blue glasses, to polarized technology where the viewers can witness this technology at 3D and IMAX theaters to the current technology being used by 3D HDTV, called active technology.

Before you purchase a 3D HDTV though, you should first do some research whether the set is a full 3D HDTV or a 3D ready HDTV, because you might purchase additional accessories to have the amazing 3D experience.

There is a different and latest format that is being used by full 3D HDTV for delivering 3D content for its viewers. The set comes with different and proper 3D HDTV consumer electronics and 3D glasses. Since this technology is still in its infancy, there are no industry standard glasses that are manufactured yet, you have to rely on what the manufacturers specify.

On the other hand, 3D ready HDTV sets need an adapter to display 3D content. This is true especially for those ready 3D HDTV sets that were purchased way before March of 2010. The 3D HDTV would continue showing programs at a 2D format, but if you can get hold of the 3D starter kit and adapter, then your TV can show its 3D content and you would experience visual bliss.

Technology is always bringing us something new, interactive media would surely go 3D so better experience it now and buy your own 3D HDTV.
