3D TV Learn more

Panasonic's 3D plasma HDTVs can only deliver a 3D viewing experience if you're wearing Panasonic'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 or the TV's built-in 2D-to-3D processing, and immerse yourself in a lifelike three-dimensional viewing experience in the comfort of your home. These glasses are wireless and are powered by a small battery. Warranty: 1 year.

3D Active Shutter Eyewear: The Panasonic Active 3D Glasses (TY-EW3D10U) utilize high-precision shutter control to synchronize the 3D Eyewear to your Panasonic 3D TV, so you get crisp, clear images in each eye.

High-Precision 3D Eyewear Control Technology: Highly precise timing control for the opening and closing of the shutters minimizes unwanted light leakage to enable clear 3D viewing. This control technology completely closes the shutters for both eyes at the instant that the images change for the left and right eyes. As a result unwanted afterimages are masked to enable clear and comfortable 3D viewing.

Panasonic TV Compatibility: Panasonic 3D Eyewear is only designed only for use with certain Panasonic VIERA 3D televisions. Current models include (as of May 2011):

  • TCP50ST30
  • TCP55VT30, TCP65VT30
  • TCP50GT30, TCP55GT30, TCP60GT30, TCP65GT30

IR Sensor: The 3D glasses communicate wirelessly with your Panasonic 3D television via IR.

Viewing Distance: For a comfortable 3D viewing experience, view the screen at a distance at these recommended distances.

  • approximately 6' 2" for a 50" screen
  • approximately 6' 6" for a 55" screen
  • approximately 7' 6" for a 60" screen
  • approximately 7' 10" for a 65" screen

Note: Using the 3D Eyewear at a distance closer than the recommended distance may cause eyesight fatigue.

Maximum Viewing Range: The Panasonic 3D Active Glasses provide a maximum viewing range of 10' 5" from the front of the TV (within 35° horizontal, 20° vertical).

Adjustable, Durable Frame: The Panasonic 3D Active Glasses (TY-EW3D10U) are easily adjusted to fit various face shapes and sizes, from children to adults. They can be comfortably worn over ordinary prescription glasses. The 3D glasses only weigh 2.2 oz.

Battery Powered: The Panasonic 3D Active Glasses are powered by a single coin-shaped lithium battery (CR2032). The battery provides approximately 75 hours of use.

Auto Power Off: An Auto Power Off function automatically turns the glasses off if they are placed in a location outside the viewing range for 5 minutes, even if the TV remains turned on.

3D Warnings:

  • Only use the 3D Eyewear for viewing 3D content.
  • Do not move around while wearing the 3D Eyewear.
  • Parents/guardians should monitor children's viewing habits to avoid their prolonged use without rest periods.
  • In the event that you experience dizziness, nausea, or other discomfort while viewing 3D images, discontinue use and rest your eyes.

3D Glasses

Written By Richard, Jacksonville Fl. on Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is my first 3D system also the first time wearing the glases. I do like them and so does the wife. The granddaughter did not like them. She ( 8 years old) liked the rechargeable ones that came with the TV. I say if you could try some on before buying them would be better.

Pros: I wear glases and they work well with someone who wears glases.

Cons: Very large and weight.

these things are huge

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These glasses are huge. i bought them becouse three out of the four people in my family where glasses. They are big and a little uncomfortably. I bought my wife a small pair of the TY EW3D2SU these are much better. however i have not used them enough to rate the battery diff. these are battery and the ones for my wife are rechargable ones. i think i will buy a large pair of these and try them with my glasses and see how it works.
