Can I watch regular TV on my 3D TV? Yes—3D TVs plays conventional programming, just as any other TV would, and are also equipped to provide a unique experience of the wealth of 3D content coming your way.
Do I always need to wear 3D glasses when watching TV? No—the only time you’ll need to wear these special glasses is when you’re viewing 3D content. Otherwise, your TV can still play 2D movies and shows the same way you’re used to seeing them.
What does “3D-ready” mean? The definition of "3D-ready" varies by manufacturer, but typically means that the TV can display 3D content. The easiest way to see if your TV is capable of displaying 3D content is to check the manufacturer's web site or feature materials.
The easiest way to see if your TV is 3D ready is to check for a “3D Sync Out” connection on the back panel.
Will my 3D glasses fit over my prescription glasses? In most cases, yes—modern 3D glasses are designed to fit comfortably over prescription eyeglasses. Still, it’s a good idea to try on a pair before buying them.
What’s the difference between native 3D and virtual 3D? Native 3D is content that was filmed using 3D cameras. Virtual 3D is content that was originally filmed in 2D, but is being converted to 3D format by your high-definition TV. There is a qualitative difference between the two.
How should I clean my 3D glasses? The proper way to clean your 3D glasses is by doing it one side of each lens at a time. 3D glasses actually have two screens in each lens, so putting pressure on both sides at the same time squeezes the two lenses together, causing them to come in contact and distort 3D viewing. Use a microfiber cloth to clean one side first, then the other.
Avoid using any chemicals containing alcohol, solvents, or surfactant, or chemicals such as wax, benzene, thinner, or lubricant. These may result in discoloration or cracks on the lens surface. Also, you should never spray cleaning fluid directly onto the glasses—spray onto the cloth instead.
