We talked about the LG LW6500 a few days ago. LW6500 is based on LG’s Cinema 3D or passive 3D technology that uses the much cheaper polarized 3D glasses. LG has announced that besides the LW6500, they are also planning to release an inexpensive LW5600 range with passive 3D.

Cinema 3D or passive 3D has been introduced by LG at CES 2011. The Cinema 3D technology utilizes much cheaper polarized 3D glasses that are flicker-free and has lower crosstalk. LG also points out that the 3D glasses are lighter, thinner and requires no batteries.
