All manufacturers currently use their own active 3D glasses that only work with the same brand TV. Now CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) has started a process to standardize active 3D glasses in order to make them compatible with all manufacturers' TVs.<br /><br /><h3>CEA to standardize 3D glasses</h3>The 3D market has not taken pace yet and one of the reasons are the glasses; not only are they too expensive, different glasses are also required for each brand TV.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/3dcomparison_large1.JPG" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/3dcomparison_small1.JPG" alt="3D glasses" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>3D glasses</i></p><br />CEA is now hoping to make a standard for active 3D shutter glasses to make them all compatible. Theyâ€™re planning on using a standard Infrared sync and is encouraging all the TV manufacturers to join the project called 3D Technologies Working Group. Proposals are due in March 31.<br /><br />The goal is obviously to make one manufacturerâ€™s 3D glasses compatible with other manufacturerâ€™s 3D TV. They only problem at the moment seems to be the fact that some manufacturers – including Samsung – are currently switching to Bluetooth communication, instead of Infrared, between the TV and the glasses. But weâ€™ll see how this evolves.
