Product Highlights
  • Sends 1080p Images to Each Eye
  • Use With Any 3D Compatible Screen
  • Works with Ordinary Glasses
  • Rechargeable Lithium-ion Polymer Battery
  • Power On/Off Switch
  • Lens Case Included

The VIERA Active Shutter 3D Eyewear (Medium) from Panasonic are glasses that work by responding to a sync signal transmitted by compatible Panasonic HDTVs or any other 3D compatible screen. Highly precise control completely closes the shutters for both eyes at the instant that the images change for the left and right eyes. Many times per second, faster than the eye can perceive, the HDTV shows the image meant for the left eye and then the image for the right eye. The glasses alternately block first one eye then the other. It all happens so fast that your brain sees a 3D image.

The 3D Eyewear can also be comfortably worn right over ordinary prescription glasses. The glasses are M-3D1 standard compliant for use with any 3D compatible screen.

          Comments about Panasonic VIERA Active Shutter 3D Eyewear (Medium):

          I was initially concerned that these would be too small for my 7 3/4" head, and with no larger sizes on offer at B&H, I took a chance on these. They are very comfortable and work very well with my Panasonic PJ. By contrast the Sony playstation specs are painful to wear.

          Comments about Panasonic VIERA Active Shutter 3D Eyewear (Medium):

          Watched Avatar. It was better 3D than in the
          Movies! I used the conversion of 2D into 3D
          at maximum 3D depth. Although not the extraordinary quality of Avatar, the conversion
          gave a convincing 3D appearance. I will have to
          adjust this a bit since it did start to cause some
          eye fatigue and a slight headache after about
          an hour.

              Comments about Panasonic VIERA Active Shutter 3D Eyewear (Medium):

              These newer 3D glasses are a big improvement over the older glasses that we bought with our 3DTV. They are much lighter and not as easy to break. The medium size fits most people well enough. They do a great job with the 3D visuals. The on-off switch on the top center is a vast improvement as is the ability to recharge the battery. The main negative is the fact that the battery cannot be replaced.

                    Good glasses at a good price. They also are M-3DI compatible which is an open standard for 3D glasses.
