Can I Watch Regular TV on a 3D TV?

Curious homeowners can convert to 3D TV without fear of technological backlash. The following updates show how 3D technology actually enhances the best of 2D television:

  1. 3D TV Conversion: When not being used to project vibrant HD movies, 3D TVs are more than capable of displaying traditional 2D images. The latest in television technology can actually breathe new life into standard-definition video. Recent models by Samsung and LG have the ability to add realistic depth to 2D images using the television’s 3D mode and glasses. This bonus feature is especially fun for adding a new dimension to sporting events.
  2. How 3D TV Works: Learning how 3D images work makes it easier to understand how a 3D TV can also display regular TV. Active 3D glasses work by quickly (120 times per second) alternating between frames oriented for the left and right eye. Our brain interprets this succession of flashes as one constant image to create depth. Special shutters within the glasses are used to block out interfering images. Passive 3D works by blocking different kinds of light from each eye using polarized lenses, creating the illusion of depth.
  3. Popular 3D TV Experiences: 3D TV allows homeowners to relive their favorite movie scenes in a whole new way.  New releases for 3D-compatible televisions are a treat for movie lovers of all ages. Exciting action movies like ThorTron: Legacy and Sanctum provide new chills and thrills in full 3D. Sharing kid-friendly movies like Tangled and Polar Express can help bring families closer together.

I just wanted to say Thank you soooooo much to Chuck in the service repair department. He went above and beyond customer service in repairing my "32 Samsung LCD HDTV in repairing it. While my tv was still under warranty "samsung" required that i send my TV to them, however i was not able to do so for i no longer had the box it was purchased in. Not only did Chuck offer to pic my TV at no charge, he fixed it in a timely manner and returned it to my house for me all at no charge. Thank you again Chuck
