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.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, we invite you to visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.
Panasonic's 3D technology creates separate images for the left and right eyes that are recorded with 1920 x 1080 full-HD quality and alternately played at high speed. The active shutter rechargeable glasses feature highly precise control completely that closes the shutters for both eyes at the instant that the images change for the left and right eyes. This brings cinema-level images right into the living room, without the problems of image deterioration and blurring that were common to conventional 3D systems.
The glasses also feature a durable, adjustable resin frame, a slide switch to turn power on and off, and easy recharging via USB. Sized for adults, they are designed for use while wearing ordinary prescription glasses.

A few things, the weekend before these arrived, I was at home and I went to watch Ice Age 3 3D and as I pulled out my 3D Panasonic Gen 1 glasses the first 2 of 3 pairs were dead!!!!! No 'auto off' feature, and I have no idea if I forgot to turn them off or more likely bumped the power switch while folding them up etc. and putting them into their protective boxes! Thankfully my 3rd pair still had a working battery.
So, improvement #1 - when these new Gen 2 Glasses are 'on' there is a steady blinking pulse from the LED. Improvement #2 - the power is no longer a button to be pressed but a 'switch'.
Next, once they arrived, since I did have one pair of the Gen 1's that still had a working battery I decided to watch appx. 20-30 minutes of Ice Age 3 3D with the old glasses first just to refresh my memory of all the things I 'disliked' about the old glasses - don't fit snug, light seeps in from the sides, none of the nose pieces fit properly, to easy to accidentally turn on when putting away or whatnot. Most especially though, they feel like they are going to fall off my face and when I lay sideways on the couch if I rest my head against a pillow it 'pushes' them off so I have to sit in awkward positions to watch my 3D content.
The new glasses were a god send- they fit perfectly (I used my snowboarding helmet size and measured my head to be certain I was a size medium), they are snug without pinching or hurting anywhere.Read more ›
PRO'S- Very light, Fits big/ medium/ heads with no stress, charges quick, can charge anywhere, easy use, No out side shine or glare messing up view, can watch TV at any angle and picture is very good, nice storage case, communication with seller was clear and on point, shipped very fast, cheapest i found on the web.
CON'S- After a whole movie you wanna rub you eyes because you forget to blink (I don't know if that is a con) , and after a long while (3hrs+) you start to feel the glasses on you press your head ( Not to the point it hurts) but that's all 3D glasses.
Overall Very good Product especially for the price. Like i said the cheapest on the web and i have been checking for a month. I will be buying my next pair from this seller. I can recommend this product to anyone with a Panasonic TV . You don't even need to think about it just buy it and thank them later like i did.
I did not notice a huge difference between the medium and large sizes. These glasses were slightly less tight on my head and face, but for me, but I could use medium or large size equally well. As with the medium size glasses, I typically placed the glasses further down the bridge of my nose so that I could lean my head back on the couch while I watched the movie. I am caucasian with a typical nose - rather narrow and pointy. The glasses, though larger, did not slide off my nose or create any problems with being too loose.
For me, size medium or large would work equally well. I am glad I bought the large, however. When my parents come to watch our kids, the large 3d glasses will likely work better for my dad, who is larger than I am.

I don't use 3D glasses that much, but these are nice for occasional use.Published 3 months ago by Sarahlea
So happy to have another pair of glasses to use with the TV. We enjoy the 3D effect.Published 22 months ago by Elizabeth Pace-Upshaw
Check your compatibility first! Panasonic does not make this obvious, but these will not work with all Panasonic TV's, even when they're plasma and use active shutter technology.Published on November 12, 2013 by JB
