Standardized 3D Glasses Due Next Year

Panasonic, Samsung and Sony have joined with glasses-maker Xpand 3D to create a technology standard for active-shutter 3D glasses. The new glasses will connect with next-generation TVs and computers using Bluetooth wireless technology, though they will also include IR connectivity for compatibility with current 3D sets. The partnership has been dubbed the Full HD 3D glasses initiative, and promises to deliver universally compatible glasses in 2012.

Standardization should bring several consumer benefits. If you have more than one 3D device in the house, the same glasses will work with all of them. When shopping for extra glasses, you wouldn’t be locked into one manufacturer’s products. And it should also drive the price down at retail stores, which wouldn’t have to stock different models for each TV brand.
