LG Cinema 3D is so called because it is considered the closest you will get to the 3D viewing quality and experience you get in the cinema, yet within your own home.
LG’s range of Cinema 3D TVs are designed with LG’s exclusive FPR (Film-type Patterned Retarder panel).
The FPR panel optimises the separation of images into an image for the left eye and another for the right. These two images are ‘filtered’ through the Cinema 3D glasses to create a high quality 3D viewing experience.
Active vs. Passive
LG offer their customers the choice between passive and active 3D viewing.
As the only manufacturer to offer both options to the market, they have built up significant research to clarify which form of 3D viewing is most preferable to its consumers.
Following a year’s experience of retailing their 3D technology, followed by an additional survey, it has been found that 88% of consumers prefer the passive 3D experience to that of the active.
Polarised 3D glasses used for Passive 3D viewing, block dissimilar kinds of light from each eye, creating the illusion of depth.
In comparison to ‘active-shutter glasses’, i.e. Active 3D viewing, the polarised glasses cut out a a great deal of technology to function, as well as heavy batteries – making them cheaper and lighter to wear.
Weighing only 16 grams – almost half the weight of conventional 3D glasses – Cinema 3D users are provided with a comfortable viewing experience in home-appropriate screen dimensions ranging from 32 inches to 55 inches.
When you buy a Cinema 3D TV, you are provided with an extensive seven pairs of polarised glasses, with extras pairs costing only £2 each.
The frames are ergonomic and designed with your viewing pleasure in mind; lightweight and comfortable, they do not require batteries, charging or synchronisation with your Cinema 3D TV.
With several polarised glasses, it means that friends and family can enjoy the magic of 3D TV together in its stunning full HD capacity.
