Yes if you plug your computer into your tv and it has nvidia 3d support then use sterescopic when you set it up instead of classes
There are converters that claim to help you watch 3D on regular TVs though not everyone would compare the effect to 3D. Sony's new 3D TVs claim to have an "up-conversion" tha…t will up any of your current 2D dvds to 3D. Again, we wont know until they arrive how successful this is. Expect other manufacturers to have their own technology to do the same thing.
3D video content does not display correctly on a 2D television so you will ned the 2D version to watch it properly.
Probably not if it makes your head hurt worse. Sometimes watching TV can act as a distraction to the pain and can actually be helpful. Each patient is different from the next.… For best advice, seek the help of a physician or headache specialist.
Yes, but they will probably supply 3D glasses with it, so you can look cool while watching it!
Some 3D televisions have a 3D simulation facility that tries to recreate a 3D image from 2D content. Don't expect it to be the same standard as content originated in 3D. The f…eature must be treated as a bonus and not a reason to buy one model over another.
No, unless you don't watch Direct TV or have 2D to 3D Conversion TV. However, not all the 3D TVs are capable of converting 2D to 3D. Therefore, answer is Yes and No. You will …be able to watch TV channels in 3D on 3D TVs like LG but not on such like a Vizio because they don't support 2D to 3D conversion. So check the spec whether there are this feature in the TV before you buy it if you want to watch TV channels like Oprah, American Idol, NFL in 3D. Plus, this conversion feature convert not only TV channels but anything on TV meaning you will be able to watch literaily any contents even downloaded movie from internet, on 3D. I read ESPN and Discovery Channel in 3D are available for 24/7.
I want comfort while watching 3d TV instead of creating headache by wearing 3d glass So please suggest me a 3d TV without glass or with comfortable 3d glass?
Toshiba are selling an auto-stereoscopic 3D television (no glasses needed) at around $10,000. For those of us with a more modest budget, why not audition Samsung, Sony and Pa…nasonic, all of whom offer full HD resolution with some of the lightest glasses around. LG have even lighter glasses because they use the throw away type as used in cinemas but the 3D resolution on an LG is only 540 lines to each eye, just half that of the premium brands.
You experience a headache because its Shutter glasses 3D TV. It works by sending both images into left and right eye rapidly one at time, which can cause headache and nausea. …The shutter glasses also have power batteries in them which make them heavier than the glasses for Cinema 3D. Cinema 3D TV uses polarized 3D glasses just like the theaters so they provide the most natural way to view 3D images resulting in less headaches.
Some people are unable to tolerate 3D effects on televisions and can report headaches. Others have no such problem. If you experience discomfort, stop watching and let your ey…es rest.
3D TV is capable of showing both 2D and 3D images so you can always switch between 2D and 3D. You just need to turn on the 3D mode when watching 3D movies or 3D filmed TV prog…rams that streams from cable/satelite. Then switch to 2D mode when watching regular 2D programs, and it goes the same when you playing video games too. There is however a feature called 2D to 3D conversion, which I thought very very cool. This feature lets you change ANY 2D content into 3D, and with this feature ANY kind of movies, show programs, even a Youtube video on the web can be shown in 3D. Then you will be able to watch everything in 3D. However, this feature is not included in every 3D TV, so check the TV's specification before you buy if you want this feature. The real good news is that because of the high specifications of most 3D TVs, they also deliver exceptionally high quality 2D images as well.
Of course. All 3D TVs allow you to watch 'normal' 2D images as well. In fact the 2D quality is exceptionally good on the majority of 3D TVs.
In Home Theater
It is possible. Many 3D systems, both passive and active can create headaches and eyestrain after extended viewing. Many viewers who are prone to motion sickness may also feel… naseus depending upon the material being watched. No 3D systems are recommended for children under the age of 6 when using the 3D mode.
Is it normal to get headache and eyestrain after watching a 3D movie at home on a Samsung 3D TV set?
It's not normal to get headache and eyestrain. Some viewers do report discomfort after watching 3D. If you suffer discomfort, stop watching and let your eyes rest.
There are a lot of 3D DVDs available. Broadcast 3D is becoming more common and there are also on line sources for 3D content as well. 3D content will become more common as th…e market penetration increases in the next year or two.
Yes. Watching YouTube and Netflix on a 3D TV requires Smart TV feature, which is included in LG and Samsung 3D TVs (I'm not too sure about other brands but I'm sure they do to…o). LG already had YouTube and Netflix apps on its 3D TVs and Samsung has recently added YouTube to its TVs.
