3D TVs/Monitors

Now that 3D TV and monitors are available worldwide, I thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at how they work (might update this post at later times, or write a new post, depending on how relevant my next posts are going to be).

So basically to be able to see movies, tv series etc in 3D, you need to have a glasses.

  • With lenses
    • Anaglyphic 3D (with passive red-cyan lenses)
    • Polarization 3D (with passive polarized lenses)
    • Alternate-frame sequencing (with active shutter lenses)
  • Without lenses
    • Autostereoscopic displays, sometimes referred to commercially as Auto 3D
Autostereoscopy is any method of displaying stereoscopic images without the use of special headgear or glasses on the part of the viewer. It includes two broad classes of displays: those that use head-tracking to ensure that each of the viewer's two eyes sees a different image on the screen, and those that display multiple views so that the display does not need to know where the viewers' eyes are. 

  •  Examples of autostereoscopic displays include: 
    • parallax barrier 
    • lenticular 
    • volumetric 
    • electro-holographic 
    • light field displays.
I will get into more detail on how 3D TVs work. But I'm really busy with real life at the moment.


  1. I can't imagine watching tv on a 3d monitor. You'd end up with a serious headache

  2. congrats on the successful blog... you have a good thing going here

  3. Thanks for this review! I think these are going to be a fad more than anything :D

  4. Awesome post, love your blog
    now following/supporting, keep it up!

  5. hmm, not sure what to think about this

  6. Nice blog, I want a 3D tv now :(
