Laptops, palm tops, cell phones and tablets are becoming the new sources of entertainment then how come television would leave behind it has to do something to compete in this market. So the television now comes with 3d technology, and there are many types of 3d tv.
It is the 3d technology that has divided the television in to different types of 3d tv. The two common and the main types of 3d technology used in televisions are active and passive technologies which make one 3d tv different from another. Both of the technologies would work on any of the television, and they have the similar effect but there is a huge difference in the production cost as the material used in both of the techniques is different. Let us compare the benefits and costs of both types of 3d tv. The glasses used in active technology use liquid crystal shutters which are on batteries whereas the glasses used in passive technology use simple polarizing lenses. The main advantage that the passive type has over active type 3d tv is that the glasses used in passive technology are cheaper and inexpensive. Since passive glasses don’t run on batteries they are lighter and comfortable to use and wear than active glasses. Moreover in both types of 3d tv passive glasses come in many forms including the designer and clip-on versions for people who regularly wear glasses. Passive glasses don’t even flash when you do any other work such as using laptops or any other screen where as if we talk about the active glasses they flicker when you use another screen. The types of 3d tv have different 3d picture quality depending upon the manufacturer, model, technology used, glasses and even the size of the screen. If we differentiate the two types of 3d tv on the basis of picture quality, the passive 3d tv has more brighter image than the active 3d tv because it causes a special 3d artifact than the active models. Active 3d models don’t even show the line structure and jagged-edge artifacts that are visible and can be seen on the passive 3d TVs. Therefore, passive 3d TVs can maintain the 3d illusion, but as this passive technology is not available in plasma TVs, it is an issue for buyers who want this on their LCD.
In the mentioned above two types of 3d tv, the active 3d is the way by which consumers are able to end up seeing 3d at their homes, it is the normal TV that you have at your home, only a pair of glasses with the system that shuts the lights off to the first eye and then the other. However, passive system uses a simple pair of glasses but still to transform the passive technology in to home TVs is quite expensive. If one has to choose between the two types of 3d tv, passive 3d is the most likeable option because of its brightness, lack of rapid shuttering and comfortable glasses.
