3-D Vision's new tech is said to be an improvement over the red and blue glasses of yore.
This is where it all starts to get confusing. Not for High-Def Digest readers of course, you're cool and plugged in and you understand the whole 3D thing. But your relatives, friends and co-workers don't, and a promo like this is bound to raise more than a few questions.
The special Halloween 'Rachel Ray Show' is going to be shown in a new kind of 3D that strongly resembles the old kind of 3D. The new tech from 3-D Vision uses the same kind of cheap cardboard glasses – they'll be given out in TV guide if you're interested – and multicolored lenses as anaglyph 3D. The changes made by 3-D Vision provide full color 3D, and eliminates the brightness imbalance experienced by viewers.
The episode will air on October 29th and will feature magicians Penn and Teller as well as an appearance from Pee-wee Herman – yes, that Pee-wee Herman. You'll be able to view it on any TV, whether it's 3D ready or not.
