    What types of televisions are available in 3D?

    There are basically two types of TVs: 3D-ready and 3D-capable. 3D-ready sets send signals to your active 3D glasses from an emitter built right into the TV. 3D-capable TVs require an emitter box that is separate from the set. Many manufacturers are rolling out 3D TVs in 2010, including Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic, Sharp and others, and you´ll find 3DTVs in sizes of 40 inches and above.

    How does the new 3D technology work?

    Quite simply, it´s a whole new dimension of entertainment. 3D TV adds the illusion of a third dimension and depth to your current display. And forget the cardboard glasses of the past; new 3D TVs require active liquid crystal shutter glasses. The technology in these glasses syncs with your TV through an infrared or Bluetooth signal. The batteries in these glasses can last up to 80 hours or more. Without these glasses, the picture will appear distorted and blurry.

    Here´s a video of 3D glasses in action:

    Can I convert 2D content into 3D?

    It really depends on the TV you own. Several models will include conversion processing that will enable viewers to watch what they want in 3D. It may not be as realistic as true 3D content, but the technology continues to improve.

    As an early adopter of this technology, it can get pricey, starting around $1,700 and costing as much as $6,000 or $7,000 for some of the bigger sets with all the bells and whistles. For a 3D-enabled Blu-ray player, you can expect to pay about $400. For an extra pair of glasses, it´ll set you back about $150 a pair.
