3D TV Specs Not Compatible

Posted by Andrew at 3:56 PM on May 5, 2010

I read this article over at Home Cinema Choice and despaired.  Despite being based on the same technology,  the 3D specs used by Samsung and Panasonic aren’t compatible….unless you wear them upside down.

What were they thinking?  And why couldn’t someone have simply picked up the phone and said, “Hey guys, what way round are you doing your 3D glasses?”

This could be as big as Blu-ray v HD-DVD all over again, with Sony going for one eye and Toshiba going for the other.  Not.

I’d be wary of any new technology until they have time to sort the bugs out, but frankly, you couldn’t make this stuff up.
