Passive 3D LED TVs
Passive 3D TVs and active 3D TVs use different technology to generate 3D images. Active 3D TVs use active glasses to have shutters rapidly open and close left and right eyes alternately to achieve the 3D effects. The passive 3D TVs utilized a polarized film to separate the left- and right-eye images. The passive 3D TV uses polarized glasses, the same as used in 3D movie theater, which are much cheaper and lighter than active shutter glasses. Therefore, passive 3D TVs are particularly suitable for large groups of viewers to watch 3D sports or movies.
