The battle between passive and active 3D televisions is heating up. And it seems that the two Korean CE giants are turning the competition into a battle of certifications. Last month, LG earned VDE's "Full HD 3D" approval for their Cinema 3D TV in a bid to put naysayers to rest. More recently, Samsung announced its D8000 active-shutter 3D TV has been awarded with TÜV Rheinland's "Full HD 3D Tested" and "3D Tested" certifications.
Electronic World TV - The Samsung UE46D8000 Active 3DTV has been awarded a “Full HD 3D Tested” certificate. It was certified at one of the best known and respected certification facilities in Europe, TÜV Rheinland.
TÜV Rheinland's certifications include a wide range of 3D and 2D analyses, such as crosstalk, contrast levels and other integral 3D TV features tested in compliance with VESA or ISO 2D standards. According to Electronic World's report, the awards also peg Samsung as the first TV manufacturer to have their TV tested for multiple 3D attributes. More on this story here.
