Vizio Introducing Consumer Grade 3D TVs That Use Passive Technology

Posted Mon Jun 21, 2010 at 08:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

That means no more $150 glasses, but the price of the TV itself is up in the air.

You asked for it and Vizio's bringing it. Passive 3D technology means you won't have to shell out $150 for a pair of battery operated glasses, and that's something that people seem to like.

At the ESA Line expo, Vizio is going to be demonstrating a 65 inch television that uses passive 3D tech. There's no word on availability or pricing, but since it's aimed at traditional consumers – and it's from Vizio – it should be fairly reasonable.

Of course, passive 3D displays are available now if you want them, but they're not anywhere in the realms of useful or cheap. The only way you can get one is by going through the professionals and buying a far too expensive 3D monitor.

Hopefully we'll find out more about the 65 inch passive 3D TV during Vizio's press conference at the expo.
