Samsung 3D Active Shutter Glasses - SSG2100AB
Communicating wirelessly with your 3D-capable Samsung HDTV, SSG-2100AB Active Shutter glasses lighten and darken their liquid-crystal lenses hundreds of times per second in perfect coordination with the 3D content showing on the HDTV screen, allowing you to experience an incredibly vivid, lifelike, and of course, three-dimensional movie night at home. Compatible with all 3D-capable Samsung HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and HTIBs, the battery-powered SSG-2100AB glasses are sized to fit most adults.
Let 3D Go To Your Head
Okay, so you've got the new 3D HDTV, and the 3D Blu-ray Disc player, and a new 3D Blu-ray movie. So, you're ready to plop down on the couch and enjoy some three-dimensional viewing right in the comfort of your own living room, right? Well, almost. While 3D-capable HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and Blu-ray movies are all necessary for bringing the 3D experience home, there's still one more piece to the puzzle — 3D glasses. You see, in order to create a three-dimensional visual effect, 3D HDTVs must work in concert with a pair of active shutter glasses (details on how all this works below). Because the SSG-2100AB 3D Active Shutter glasses communicate wirelessly with the 3D emitter built into all 3D-capable Samsung HDTVs, all you have to do is don a pair of these groovy shades, nestle into a comfy spot, press PLAY, and brace yourself for a truly immersive home theater experience. (Note: the SSG-2100AB glasses are sized for use by adults and require separate batteries for use.)
Three Cheers For 3D
Samsung's 3D technology uses the same principles upon which human sight is based to achieve a 3D effect in the home theater. By themselves, each human eye sees only two dimensions. However, because our eyes are set slightly apart, each sees an object or scene from a slightly different angle. And when the brain processes the images seen by each eye into a single image, we are able to perceive depth in what we are seeing. Add depth to the height and width (2D) seen by each single eye, and ta-da: 3D! For its part, a Samsung 3D HDTV actually shows two different versions of a movie on the screen at the same time (alternating frames from each at extremely high speeds). What makes the two versions different is that they were filmed from slightly different angles. Now, 3D Active Glasses communicate wirelessly with the 3D HDTV. Using special liquid-crystal lenses, the 3D glasses alternately block out the left or right lens in coordination with the frames flashing on-screen. Accordingly, the right eye sees only the "version" of the movie intended for the right eye, and the left eye only sees its version. Just as with normal human sight, the brain combines the two versions into one, and voilà, you see 3D. Three cheers!
