LG announced today that the German VDE, one of the largest technical and scientific associations in Europe, has certified the LG Cinema 3D TVs to be full HD in 3D-mode. LG’s Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, used on the CINEMA 3D TVs, creates the perception of 3D depth by delivering two 540 line images, one for each eye, that are then combined via the glasses to create a unified 1080p image. The ruling from the VDE lets LG carry the full HD badge. There is no explanation on how the VDE arrived at this ruling. I just posted a hands-on comparison of FPR 3D TVs versus Shutter Glasses 3D TVs last week. Shutter glasses based 3D TVs deliver the better 3D image. The lower resolution on FPR 3D TVs is clearly noticeable at a viewing distance of 3m or less. If you are sitting further away your eye cannot make out the difference. I like to leverage the size of the TV to get as much immersion as possible. On a 50-inch TV I sit not further away than about 3-4m. 

The resolution is the only real caveat of the FPR 3D technology. For casual 3D viewing it is the way to go. If you want the best image quality you still have to go with shutter glasses and deal with the downsides.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
