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:

A Display
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.
A Source
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
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.
3D Glasses
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.
HDMI Cable
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.

Compatible Panasonic VIERA HDTVs

First, I will preface this review by saying that I have only used these glasses for a total of appx. 30 minutes, and so I may modify my rating next week to 4 stars, but I highly doubt that (I plan to watch about 5 3D Blu-Rays from start to finish using my new glasses while on vacation!).

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.

The nose piece is comfortable but makes the glasses go up way too high. You have to literally wear it almost at the tip of your nose so that the glasses can be centered correctly with the TV. If you wear them normally, you have to look up the whole time. I'm not sure if the size matters because I have a normal sized head and other reviewers have said that the sizes of the glasses are almost exactly the same anyways. Other than that problem, its an okay pair of 3D glasses. Still think they are way too expensive though. I'm Not sure if Panasonic will ever make a perfect pair of 3D glasses, but it is definitly an imporovement from the older model.

Hello i purchased this item for My Panasonic VIERA TC-P42GT25 42-inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV and just let me say they work flawless. I used it on my basic hi Depth cable channels and the news was popping out so much i watched CNN for 2 hrs. I Tested it on my PlayStation 3 playing call of duty and it was like playing a whole new game because the picture was so much more crisp and sharp ( plus zombies popping a bit out the screen). Truly one of the greatest experiences i had playing a game to date and I a 20 year gamer. IT even worked great with the 3d programing i have streaming on comp via TV screen.

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.

Size: Large Verified Purchase
After purchasing Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT25 50-inch for Christmas, I have slowly been adding to my glasses collection so my family could watch a 3d movie together. I could not find any reviews for the large size glasses Panasonic TY-EW3D2LU, but I finally bought a pair this week and used them last night. I bought these glasses for myself (the dad of the family). My head circumfrance is 23.5", which is borderline for medium and large size glasses. Head shape probably also figures into this. For anyone else who is trying to decide which size, here's my thoughts on fit after watching one movie.

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.
