3D Technology Checklist
This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use the checklist below to ensure you have everything you need. 3D viewing requires:
First, you'll need a 3D-ready display--whether it's a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays have more processing power than standard 2D models for displaying 3D images in rapid succession.
Your display may be ready for 3D playback, but you'll still need a device to read 3D content. This can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3 system.
3D content--the actual entertainment, in other words--will be played back using the source mentioned above, whether it's a 3D broadcast from your cable provider, a 3D Blu-ray Disc, or a 3D video game.
For now, the vast majority of 3D HDTVs require glasses for 3D viewing. Many use powered "active shutter" glasses, others polarized "passive" glasses. You'll need one pair per viewer, and they'll have to be compatible with your display, whether they're the same brand, or a pair of "universal" glasses designed to work across brands.
To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a high-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation feature bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second), for carrying the 3D signal without any loss of quality.

Bring the Movie Theater 3D Experience Home
VIZIO's Immersive Theater 3D
Bring that intense 3D movie experience home with VIZIO's polarized Theater 3D. You'll enjoy the same quality 3D you get in the theater, with similar lightweight glasses that are comfortable and significantly more affordable than the heavier, powered active shutter 3D glasses used with other systems.
Note: You'll need a VIZIO 3D HDTV, along with a 3D-capable source device like a VIZIO 3D Blu-ray player to complete the experience.
A comparison of Active 3D Glasses and VIZIO's Theater 3D models.
Because there are no moving shutters, VIZIO's Theater 3D generates a crystal-clear, flicker-free 3D image, that's up to 50% brighter than active-shutter 3D.
In 3D displays, "crosstalk" occurs when the signal meant for your right eye gets sent to your left and the signal meant for your left eye gets sent to your right, or when one signal bleeds into the other. The "crossing" of these signals can cause disorientation and a ghosting effect where the 3D display appears blurred or out of proportion. Using a polarized approach reduces this effect substantially.
An Affordable Option
Unlike its active-shutter counterpart, Theater 3D Eyewear is affordable enough to outfit the entire family, even friends. It's perfect for 3D sporting, movie, or concert events. You can even use them at your local movie theater, for that matter, when the next 3D blockbuster comes out.
