Toshiba's active 3D-ready TVs like the UL610U series can only deliver a 3D viewing experience if you're wearing Toshiba's 3D Active Glasses. These liquid-crystal "active" glasses alternately darken the left or right lens in sync with the TV, so that only your right eye sees the right image and only your left eye sees the left image. Combine the TV and glasses with a 3D video source and immerse yourself in a lifelike three-dimensional viewing experience in the comfort of your home.

Toshiba's 3D glasses communicate wirelessly with the 3D emitter built into 3D-ready Toshiba HDTVs, and they're powered by a small built-in battery. Warranty: 90 days.

Overview: The Toshiba 3D glasses (FPT-AG01U) enable you to watch 3D video content (such as movies, games, or sporting events) from your 3D-ready Blu-ray player, gaming system, or satellite receiver (HDMI v1.4) on your compatible Toshiba 3D-ready LCD HDTV.

Note: The ideal viewing distance should be at least 3 times the screen height. Due to the possible impact on vision development, viewers of 3D video images should be age 6 or above.

Compatibility: The Toshiba 3D glasses (FPT-AG01U) are only compatible with Toshiba 3D-ready LCD HDTVs; including the Toshiba WX800 series LED-LCD TVs (as of October 2010).

Note: In addition to a compatible Toshiba 3D-ready LCD TV, viewing 3D programming requires a compatible 3D playback device (Blu-ray/Satellite receiver) with compatible 3D content connected to your 3D-ready TV via a 3D capable high-speed HDMI (v1.4) cable.

Liquid-Crystal Shutter Lenses: A right and left liquid-crystal shutter opens and closes alternately with the images for the left eye and for the right eye alternately project on the television screen. In this way, 3D images are reproduced.

IR Receiver: The Toshiba 3D glasses feature an integrated IR receiver which receives the infrared signal from the liquid-crystal shutter control sent from your 3D-ready Toshiba LCD TV.

Note: Do not block the IR sensor for 3D glasses on the TV by placing objects in front of it.

Power Indicator: When the 3D glasses are turned on, the power light lights up for approximately two seconds. When the power to the 3D glasses is turned off, the power light blinks three time. The power light will blink five times when the battery is low. The power light will not light up or blink if the battery has died.

Power Requirements: The Toshiba 3D glasses operate off of a single CR2032 3V lithium coin-type battery (included). The battery's life is approximately 75 hours. A small phillips-head screwdriver is supplied in order to remove and replace the battery.

Note: If the infrared data communication between your 3D Toshiba television and the 3D glasses is lost for 5 minutes, the power of the 3D glasses is turned off to prevent the battery being consumed.

Included Accessories: The Toshiba 3D glasses include a hard-plastic storage case, a restraint band, and a cleaning cloth.
