3D TV at Home

If you are interested in purchasing a 3D TV for the home, consider what components you would like to have in an HDTV. Would you prefer an active or passive 3D experience? Because of the different types of HDTVs available on the market, you will have to do some research to help you identify the best option for you.
3D experienceHDTVs come in various formats. The types of HDTVs available differ in image quality and resolution. The lowest version is the 720 model. The number refers to the number of lines used to create an image. The models are followed by a ‘p’ or an ‘i’. The letters refer to the type of scan the image displayed. The ‘p’ refers to a progressive scan, while the ‘i’ refers to an interlaced scan. The progressive scan types of HDTVs are able to process and display the images quicker than those with the interlaced scan display. HDTVs typically come with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). HDMI enables digital video and audio connection system within an HDTV to connect to audio and video components. The video and digital audio can run through one cable without compromising image quality.
There are several things to consider when purchasing an HDTV. Blu-ray video content is one of the innovative technologies associated with 3D TV. It is designed to provide a more engaging viewer experience for media enthusiasts. Fans of the Blu-ray technology enjoy the extraordinary image quality and high resolution it’s capable of. Blu-ray is a specialized optical disc format technology. Its purpose is to enable recording, rewriting and playback of what is considered high-definition video. It is supported by over 200 of the world's manufacturers of electronics and other media devices. One benefit to the technology is that the storage capacity is over 5 times greater than the traditional DVD formats. You have to make sure that the 3D TV you are interested in is compatible with the Blu-ray player you are considering. There are Blu-ray players that are not 3D compatible, so it's important to carefully research the model.

It’s also important to consider whether or not you want an active or passive display in your 3D experience. An active display alternates between both eyes as you view an object. The display alternates in a rapid manner between the left and right eye. The passive display provides an entirely different viewing experience. While the image is displayed to both eyes, the image is blocked from being viewed temporarily by one eye. If you purchase a 3D TV with an active display, know that a power source for the glasses will be involved. If you choose to go with a passive display, you will not have to worry about a power source. The latter of the two is often the more affordable option for most.
