LG is one of the few flat panel TV manufacturers that currently believes in the passive polarized 3D-technology for flat panel TVs. And now they’re releasing the LD950 model in the UK..
LG LD950 passive 3DTV
The passive 3D technology that utilizes much cheaper polarized glasses but also halves the resolution on flat panel TVs is not exactly mainstream. Most of the other manufacturers have released 3DTVs based on the active 3D technology with 3D shutter glasses.
LG also has 3DTV based on the active 3D technology but now they’re releasing the LD950 based on the passive 3D technology. LG also says that they want to release more 3DTVs with passive 3D in 2011, thereby giving consumers the choice between 3DTVs with expensive glasses and full resolution or 3DTVs with very cheap glasses and half resolution.
The LD950 is a LCD-TV with TruMotion 200 Hz and 150,000:1 contrast ratio. It also comes with 4 passive 3D glasses included. Additional glasses are available, too.
LG has now officially made the 47-inch model 47LD950 available in the UK. It’s in stores at retailers such as Amazon UK here. And it seems that we'll see more passive 3D from LG in 2011.
