Background info: I was at a retail store a few days ago. The inventory included 3D blu-ray discs and blu-ray consoles. I am intrigued, but somewhat ignorant of the technology as I have only watched 3D films in theatres with calibrated eye-glasses. I asked multiple personnel about the necessary equipment to have a 3D set-up, and there were mixed answers. I don’t know at this point who was right and who was wrong. Web searches are not yet helping me on this topic.
Do I need a special TV set or not? I already own a Ultra HD 4k TV, but I was given different answers as to whether or not this TV was sufficient for 3D blu-ray.
Is there a TV set that is both 4k and 3D? The verbal answers that I received so far include “no” and “I don’t know”.
What’s the ‘dope’? Thank you graciously for your time.
NOTE: I typed out “bluray” without hyphen to help in searching thread titles. Less than 4 characters per word are problematic in searches if I understand correctly.
Your set would be branded as 3D, and most likely you’ll have to buy 3D glasses for it as well. It looks like vizio only has 4 3D models, and they’re all out of stock, so yours almost certainly isn’t 3D.
3D was kind of a fad that the TV industry was trying to push a few years ago and then pretty much died out. Most modern TVs don’t come with 3D features anymore because it wasn’t that great an experience.
