LG Cinema 3D LW6500
We expected LG to release new 3DTV models at CES and now LG has sent out a teaser regarding a new LW6500 range of 3DTVs. The LW6500 is different from current 3DTV models as it uses the passive 3D technology with very cheap polarized glasses. Expect up to 65 inch LW6500 models.
LG calls their passive 3D technology"Cinema 3D" and it is based on the FPR technology
that we talked about a few weeks ago.
- “With the introduction of our innovative CINEMA 3DTM TV, LG is setting another standard for 3D entertainment,”
said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company.
- “For consumers who want to enjoy cinema-quality 3D at home with their family and friends, LG is now making that possible.”
LG promises flicker-free 3D images with the new polarized 3D glasses and the LW6500 TVs. Tipping the scales at just 16 grams, the included 3D glasses have no electrical parts and are free of electromagnetic waves and never need to be recharged. The glasses do not need to be synchronized so viewers can watch the LW6500’s screen from any angle. And because the glasses are far less expensive than shutter glasses, viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for family and friends.Specifications: 3D TV (CINEMA 3DTM)
