HDTV 3D Newness: Vizio to release passive-glasses HDTV 3D model line

January 3, 2011 by  

Vizio is jumping into the fray of the 3D HDTV battle with their newest line release, The Theater 3D lineup. Its Vizio’s attempt to stay up with the current HDTV trends, and it looks pretty good, we have to say. Here’s more details:

We doubt we’ve seen all of Vizio’s 2011 product lineup yet, but the latest information is that it’s expanding upon the one Theater 3D TV model currently available with an entire line — promising to offer 3D with passive glasses in sizes from 22- all the up to 71-inches. There are 21 models detailed in the press release after the break including LED edge lit LCDs, direct LED backlit models, ones with the Yahoo! Widgets VIA package and a couple of the new Google TV-powered models. No word on price or ship date yet, but the company is quick to point out that putting the 3D processing into the screen means cheaper movie theater-style 3D glasses with ostensible greater brightness and less flicker, plus compatibility with Oakley’s “optically correct” specs.

Advancements are good, even if they are being geared towards a technology that isn’t exactly lighting up the shelves around the globe.
