Enjoy the ultimate viewing experience at home or away with the Clark Kent Visopix 3D glasses. These aesthetic and affordable glasses will work on any circularly polarized 3D TV, so they’re the perfect model to take out to bars and watch live sport without needing the spend a penny on borrowing.
Passive 3D glasses, unlike active glasses, require no power source to work. As such, they’re hugely more affordable than the alternative version. Passive glasses also require no extra emitters to be used with the TV, and won’t affect the frame rate of your viewing. Passive glasses also cause no eye strain or fatigue, as the eyes don’t need to adjust in the same way that an active 3D television requires.
Active VS Passive
What the above means is that there’s something of a battle between manufacturers to stick with one version – LG, Toshiba and Panasonic favour passive viewing, whereas Sony are still favouring the active version – and at the moment there isn’t one universal version, so we’d strongly recommend checking your TV to make sure you’re going to be able to use these glasses with your television.
