Slimming down the LCD lens thickness and revising the overall structure allowed us to cut about 30% of the total weight compared to our previous models. * Lightest active-shutter-method 3D Eyewear in S/M sizes, as of August 1, 2011 (excluding the TY-EW3D3L).
In addition to raising the light transmissivity of the shutters by 10% over our previous model*, the temple portions have been widened to block the entry of excessive light from the sides. This enables bright, crisp 3D viewing. *Compared with the TY-EW3D2.
When the battery is charged from VIERA TV's USB terminal, only 2 minutes of charging gives you about 3 hours of use. With 30 minutes of charging, you get about 25 hours of use. From now on, you can spend less time charging the battery and more time watching the 3D images.
The switching function is convenient when, for example, a group of people are watching 3D images and one person decides to take a break. When the switch is set to 2D, the images that you see with both eyes through the 3D Eyewear consist of the data for only a single eye's image. To watch 3D images again, you just flip the switch. This function gives you more flexible viewing options and ensures a comfortable viewing experience.
