Independent Study Reveals Differences between Active and Passive 3D Glasses
Ever wondered whether active or passive 3D glasses are better? Well, an independent study has revealed the differences between the two - in summary, the vertical viewing angles for passive glasses are more restricted compared to active glasses, but at the same time, active glasses block out more light, meaning that images will be darker when viewed through them. Unfortunately, if you're one of those who have issues viewing 3D movies, there are no definitive answers yet.
TCO - TCO Development, the company behind the usability and eco label for ICT products, has released the results of a study to compare the visual experience of active shutter eye-glasses or passive FPR (film pattern retarder) eye-glasses technology for viewing 3DTV. The study confirms that the two techniques differ in visual performance characteristics that affect the overall 3D experience.
