It would be difficult to document all of the glasses and all of the 3D TV models and projectors that work with the Full HD 3D standard, but we can confirm that many popular models do use the standard (some included below). If those Samsung glasses you're looking at adhere to the Full HD 3D standard (which most do, since 2012/2013), then you can happily use those inexpensive Samsung glasses with your Panasonic TV or with any other compatible 3D TV or projector. I've personally tested Samsung 3D glasses with Panasonic TVs and Epson projectors and can confirm that they work fine.
Take the comfort of your Samsung 3D glasses with you to the movies in place of traditional glasses or wear them while on your PC. Samsung 3D glasses are compliant with the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative Standard, which allows you to wear your glasses for more than just your TV.
This lack of a universal standard led to some confusion, including a ridiculous article that stated that you could use Samsung 3D glasses with Panasonic TVs i. The real issue there was that the glasses were synchronized to the wrong TV which led to them be one frame off: the left eye was getting the right eye signal, and vice versa. But even if you wore the glasses upside down, a Panasonic 3D TV from 2010 or 2011 could not activate a pair of Samsung 3D glasses, nor could a Samsung TV from 2010 or 2011 turn on a pair of Panasonic 3D glasses.
The Samsung 3D active glasses needed for its TVs have turned up for sale and cost $150 per set. That’s right; a family of four will drop an extra $600 on 3D glasses alone. I’d like to kick the guy who made this decision in the balls for all 3D TV fans out there.
Samsung 3D TV glasses : Samsung announced the launch of a new website which will allow Samsung to directly fullfill its previously announced free 3D glasses promotion, which offered two pairs of Samsung 3D glasses with all consumer purchases of 2011 model Samsung 3D TVs purchased during the promotion period. For consumers who purchase a 2011 Samsung 3D TV from an authorized Samsung retailer between April 24 and June 25, 2011, and do not otherwise receive 3D glasses from that retailer (either as part of the 3D glasses promotion or as part of a 3D Starter Kit provided by the retailer with select TV models), Samsung will provide 2 pairs of 3D battery glasses to the consumer. |
