LG update on Cinema 3D firmware

by stevenparker76 - 8/22/11 9:55 PM

There's been a buzz here about active 3D TV vs. passive 3D
TV. I know there are people who prefer active 3D TVs because of the higher
image quality. Some, including myself, prefer passive 3D TVs because they are more
comfortable (flicker free and crosstalk free). Although some say that active 3D
TVs have superior 3D image quality over passive 3D TVs but I personally don't
think the difference is that noticeable. I mean, image quality on passive 3D TV
is perfectly good. But for those who are still concerned about the picture
quality on passive 3D TVs, LG recently updated its firmware on its Cinema 3D
series. According to flat panel review of LG's LW6500, its 3D system and
software were updated to improve 3D picture quality. I didn't know this but LG
Cinema 3D was awarded a full HD 3D certified by a German institute. I think
that says a lot about its picture quality. I wonder if I can get the update on
my TV (I already own a LW6500) or if the update is only on the new models.

Anyway, Long review short: LG's Cinema 3D used to show 2
frames in a time period of 1/200 seconds but now it shows 4 frames in the same
time period, showing 1080i for each eye. These combine to create a 1080p picture.
