Samsung's 2010 3D-ready TVs can only deliver a 3D viewing experience if you're wearing Samsung's 3D Active Shutter Glasses. These glasses have special liquid crystal lenses which lighten and darken in precise coordination with the 3D content displayed on the TV screen. Each eye sees a full 1080p image, just a slightly different version, which is necessary to create the 3D effect. Combine the TV and glasses with a 3D video source and you're ready to enjoy a lifelike three-dimensional viewing experience in the comfort of your home.

Samsung's 3D glasses are completely wireless. They communicate via infrared beams with the 3D emitter built into all 3D-ready Samsung HDTVs. These SSG-2200AR glasses are powered by a small built-in rechargeable battery, and are sized to fit most adults. Warranty: 1 year.

Product Research


Overview: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-2200AR) includes one pair of 3D active glasses with an integrated rechargeable 3.7V Li-Polymer battery, 4' charging cable, and a soft carrying pouch. Samsung's battery powered 3D active glasses allow you to experience 3D entertainment from a Samsung 3D HDTV and a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player (with 3D movie), or satellite provider broadcasting in 3D.

Compatibility: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-2200AR) are compatible with 2010 Samsung 3D-ready HDTVs. You must also have a 3D-ready Blu-ray player with 3D content, or a satellite/cable provider broadcasting in 3D.

Note: Not compatible with 2011 Samsung 3D TVs (featuring a bluetooth interface) or previous Samsung TV's which featured a 3D Sync IR output.

3D Active Technology: When you put the 3D glasses on and look at the TV screen, this active 3D technology first blocks the left and then the right lens (faster than the blink of an eye, so you don't even notice), displaying the screen's images separately to each eye. This "staggered" effect provides far more lifelike 3D images, than previous technologies.

Operation: The 3D active glasses operate off of an integrated rechargeable battery. There is a power button on top of the right-hand side of the glasses. The power button features a red LED indicator. The indicator blinks for 3 seconds when turned "On", and blinks three times when turned "Off".

Charging: When the 3D glasses red LED blinks every three seconds continuously, you to recharge the 3.7V Li-Polymer battery by attaching the supplied charging cable. There is a proprietary connector on the bottom of the right-hand side of the 3D glasses for connecting the charging cable. The cable's micro-USB connector plugs into the 3D glasses, while the cable's USB type-A connector plugs into your Samsung's TV USB port. 2 hours of recharging provides 30 hours of operation.

Rules for TV Watching:

  • If you are watching 3D in a room lit by a light magnetic fluorescent lamp (50Hz or 60Hz), you may see flickering on the 3D glasses. If this occurs, please turn off the light.
  • If you change the channel or input more when watching 3D, the TV will change to 2D from 3D automatically. When the TV changes from 3D to 2D the glasses will automatically turn off.
  • If the Emitter becomes disconnected to due to either a change in the angle or viewing distance, the 3D glasses turn off automatically after 2 minutes. This this case, the red LED blinks 3x.
  • 3D glass may  not work properly due to noise interference from other electric devices under specific condition.
