The 3D glasses that come with Samsung’s to- end 3D TVs, including both LED and Plasma models, could end up costing a family of four between $600 and $700 on top of the cost of purchasing a new 3D flat-panel TV, Samsung Australia executives have said.At this stage, the cost of a new 3D flat -panel TV will be “around $400” more expensive than a non-3D TV, claim Samsung Australia executives. In addition, consumers will pay between $150 and $175 for a pair of battery-operated 3D glasses.

The glasses will be active 3D glasses, not the passive that you’re accustomed to seeing at the movie theatre. The liquid crystal lenses in these Active Shutter glasses change from dark to light several hundreds of times per second while communicating wirelessly with the television set. The glasses will also be able to communicate with Samsung-branded Blu-ray players.

According to John Fragiadakis, Technical Marketing Manager in Samsung’s AV Division, the new 3D glasses will deliver 1080p HD vision through both eyes. “These are high quality glasses that deliver both 2D vision stepped up to 3D and true 3D as 1080p via our new LED and Plasma TV systems,” he said.

In addition to the cost, there are a few potential problems for people who do not have the glasses. Because of the way the content is formatted, any user without the glasses won’t be able to watch the content simultaneously with users who have glasses. In addition, Samsung’s glasses aren’t currently available in kids’ sizes and they require CR2025 batteries.
