3D Television
Three-dimensional television (3D TV) enables you to experience TV programs, movies, games, and other video content in stereoscopic (three-dimensional) effect. It gives the illusion of a third dimension - depth. You need to purchase a 3D TV in order to view content in the format and you will be required to wear active shutter glasses. All 3D TVs can run in 2D mode and still deliver an exceptional 2D picture quality.
