The impressive LED backlit set lets you use passive glasses and promises a better 3D picture than most.
Like all tech companies these days, LG is high on 3D. Like all of the other major television makers, LG wants to be your go-to choice for 3D sets. Unlike most other companies though, LG is using passive technology for their new set.
The CINEMA 3D TV uses what LG is referring to as flicker free technology but would be more accurately called passive tech. It's the same kind of 3D you get in movie theaters, some projectors and Vizio's large 3D set.
LG boasts that their adaptation of the 3D technology is the best yet, offering a wider viewing angle, brighter images and fewer visual interruptions than sets offered up by competitors.
LG's CINEMA 3D TV, also known as the LW5700, has made its debut in Korea. A global rollout is planned for March.
