Unlike conventional Active Shutter TV’s, Theater 3D is significant as user can experience 2x brighter and flicker-free picture, and reduced cross-talk nuisance. Theatre 3D HDTVs also replace the need of bulky 3D glasses by light-weight comfortable Oakley “optically correct” 3D-eyewear. These 3D glasses require no batteries or charging without battery requirements or charging. They can handle fast motion movies without blurring effects, and reduces eye strain with wide horizontal view angle, claims the company. Also see: Will CES 2011 lift 3D TV sales?
