LG's Passive-Polarized-Glasses 3DTV - Where is my Pixel?

By Rodolfo La Maestra • Aug 4 2011, 6:11pm

In the previous articles I covered the subject of the current battle between active-shutter glasses 3DTV and passive-polarized-glasses 3DTV technologies to gain consumer acceptance. I also illustrated how both TV technologies show 3D images and briefly introduced LG’s new passive 3DTV.

In this article I illustrate how that 3DTV employs a proprietary feature to claim it displays the full resolution of the original 3D images, a claim LG used to challenge active-shutter glasses 3DTV technology known to be capable of full resolution per eye.

As mentioned in other articles, passive technology discards half of the pixels of the original 3D images and LG’s implementation of the technology has a more complex pixel management. This article discusses that complexity.
