Today, you are considering a new television, and though the new LED technology looks promising, there is something even more intriguing, the Samsung 3D television! Yep you heard right they are now producing three-dimensional televisions for the consumer market. It is the thing to have if you love high definition television.
Several popular channels are now offering specific shows in 3D while satellite and cable companies are developing entire 3D channels. You will notice also that many big movie studios have decided to create more three dimensional titles and even going back and re-tooling popular titles with this new technology.
When it comes to choosing, 3D Samsung TVs are the leaders amongst the pack. Of course there will be a few questions that you will have before you run out and purchase a 3D television, the first just might be what exactly is 3D TV? To simply answer that question, 3D TV is a feature that is on a normal HDTV that is designed to display three dimensional images on your screen form content that is formatted in 3D. This takes place with the TV and a pair of 3D active shutter glasses working in sync with each other.
Your glasses and television both have a job to do to give you the three dimensional image. Samsung 3D TV screens display alternating images, each at a different angle. During this process, your glasses will alternate between eyes and at the same time switch from black to clear. All of this happens so quickly that the human eye cannot detect the differing angles, and you get to enjoy a 3D illusion.
In flat screen television, technology Samsung is definitely a leader, which is probably why they can offer a wide line of 3D TV’s. Included in their lineup are televisions ranging in size from 40 inches up to 65 inches. These of course also range in price from about $800- $2,500.
Samsung is offering these TV’s with a feature that they call Samsung Apps on their “smart” TV’s. These are web connected applications and include a web browser that allows you to search for TV shows, chat with your friends and surf the web, along with other interactive content made for television. Samsung apps connect to some of your favorite places for movies such as Blockbuster, Netflix, Hulu, and you can even watch videos that are on YouTube.
3D Samsung TV’s are leading the market with the advanced feature they are now offering on their televisions. And don’t worry; you will still be able to view regular 2D televisions on your 3D TV. The 3D technology only works with television shows and movies that have been formatted this way.
You should keep in mind that the only way to enjoy 3D TV is with the use of special glasses, which means you are going to need extras on nights when the kids are having a movie night or you plan to have several friends over.
