How it works
The inside story of 3D
Samsung Active 3D pulls you into a breathtaking three-dimensional universe of realistic depth and perspective. The HD quality picture is so sharp, it almost feels likes you're inside the picture.
Your eyes + 3D TV
Because your eyes are spaced apart from each other, you see the world at slightly different perspectives. Your brain merges these two perspectives into a single three-dimensional image. This is what gives you a sense of depth and perspective.
By displaying two images from slightly different perspectives, Samsung 3D TV is able to create the same effect. By using Samsung Active 3D glasses, your brain combines the images so you perceive a three-dimensional world that is completely immersive and realistic.

The Samsung difference
Samsung's innovative technology pushes the possibilities of 3D to new dimensions. It's not just 3D — it's Samsung Active 3D, which gives you a full HD 3D viewing experience. With realistic 3D depth and a 178-degree vertical viewing angle, every seat is a great seat.
Watch from nearly any angle
Always the best seat in the house
Samsung's lightweight active eyewear is the key to watching 3D Full HD from nearly any angle, unlike passive FPR systems that distort vertical viewing to roughly 20° degrees. Whether you're sitting, standing or lying down on the couch, there's plenty of room for the whole family to share an immersive 3D experience.
