LG to unveil passive-glasses 3D TVs at CES

LG LW6500 to bring passive 3D in 2011

LG today continued with a string of pre-CES introductions by showing a new TV range that could eliminate many of the headaches of 3D. The LW6500 uses passive glasses instead of active and, combined with new 3D film on the LCD, is much easier to accept for 3D. They produce a brighter, more flicker-free image that reduces the crosstalk from the two parts of the stereoscopic image, improving the actual end result.

Moving to the technology also reduces weight and pricing of the glasses relative to active shutter glasses. LG notes that its technique supports a wide viewing angle and is visible in 3D from virtually every angle.

Most of the specifications haven't been handed out for the LW6500 sets, but they will come in 42-, 47-, 55- and 65-inch sizes. More details should come at LG's CES press events, but the company plans to show a blitz of 3D displays using the new 3D film and glasses when appropriate, including an OLED TV, projectors, stand-alone computer displays and those built into notebooks.
