Vizio has ditched the bane of 3D televisions, the chunky, battery-powered glasses, in favour of cheaper, smaller polarised glasses like the ones mass produced for cinemas on its new Theater 3D Razor LED HDTV.
The panel boasts 65 inches, the largest screen for the company, and Vizio claims that its Theater 3D technology produces clearer, flicker-free 3D images using Active Shutter technology, eliminating the need for mechanical glasses. According to the company, the new panel is up to 50 percent brighter than conventional 3D and only experiences half the visual crosstalk distortion.
Vizio has also jumped onto the application bandwagon with Vizio Internet Apps that allows users to access online content from sites like Facebook and Twitter as well as accessing widgets.
An added bonus is that the Theater 3D glasses are compatible with most cinemas, so there’s no need to fork out more for the 3D movie ticket surcharge on disposable glasses.
The Vizio Theater 3D Razor LED HDTV (XVT3D650SV) will retail at $3,499.99 when it is released this December.
