Oskav, a new Brand for Designer Passive 3D Cinema Glasses

January 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment · General 3D News

Oskav is the name of a new UK-based brand specialized in making passive 3D movie glasses with style and at an affordable price. The Oskav 3D designer glasses offer the perfect combination of classic style, sunglasses-quality frames and high density circular polarized lenses at a price that everyone can easily afford (£19.99 UK pounds or about $31 USD). Currently there are three different models available with worldwide shipping (free shipping in UK) that are intended for use by adults, but a specially designed range for children is also expected to be released soon. The designer 3D movie glasses made by Oskav are intended to be used in movie theaters using RealD 3D projection technology, but they are also compatible with a lot of passive 3D-capable HDTVs and could also work with some passive 3D computer monitors as well…

I’ve already mentioned here that I like more the classic designs for 3D glasses and the Oskav 3D glasses’ style is just ideal for every one else with such preferences, but it is not all about the design. The passive 3D glasses made by Oskav have very good technical specifications as well that ensure optimum quality. The use of thicker polarizing filters with 10 composite layers constructing each of the lenses means that you get no image distortion and the lenses are more durable. The optical characteristics of the lenses have been optimized to better light transmittance and to minimize the negative effects such as crosstalk, so that you can get the best experience watching 3D movies. And you can also soon expect a review of the Oskav 3D glasses…

LG With New More Stylish Passive Cinema 3D TV Glasses for 2012

December 28th, 2011 · No Comments · General 3D News

LG Electronics its newest collection of 3D glasses, including a pair designed by the eyewear designer Alain Mikli, that will be introduced in the first quarter of 2012. The new line of passive 3D glasses will offer more stylish looking products – the F310, the clip-on F320 and the Alain Mikli F360 – are lighter and more comfortable to wear on one hand, and on the other the new design also offers features such as curved lenses and clean frame structure. So it seems that LG is apparently starting to move the focus from offering only cheaper passive 3D glasses, to offering affordable and good looking 3D glasses for its range of Cinema 3D TV passive 3D-capable television sets . Because the currently available range of passive 3D glasses that LG offers are not only cheap in terms of price, but also look cheap in terms of design and production and are not very sturdy and durable. Of course the new line of better-looking passive 3D glasses introduced should not be much more expensive than what the company already offers on the market, although prices have not yet been revealed…

The new LG F310 passive 3D glasses are characterized by a distinctive design that combines soft lines within a slim frame. Unlike many previous 3D glasses, the lenses have been curved to better accommodate the shape of the user’s face, as well as to improve the overall 3D viewing experience. The F310 glasses’ weight about 13.5 grams, making it about 20 percent lighter than LG’s previous design. The new LG F320 will be clip-on 3D glasses that are going to be even lighter at a weight of just about 5.5 grams, but these are of course designed to be worn over a pair of prescription glasses, so they need to be lighter. And the third new model has been developed in collaboration with Alain Mikli, the LG F360’s half-rim frame design is sportier and has a weight of only 16 grams. The lenses of the LG F360 passive 3D glasses have been curved and cover most of the user’s face, for a deeper immersion and better stereoscopic 3D experience. Besides being compatible with the Cinema 3D TV range of 3D-capable TV sets from LG, the new passive 3D glasses are also compatible with some 3D movie theaters that use RealD projection technology, as well as other compatible passive 3D displays.

Dimensional Optics’ New Affordable Passive 3D Movie Glasses

October 13th, 2011 · 3 Comments · General 3D News

Unlike active shutter glasses for 3D HDTVs that are not cross compatible between different brands, the passive 3D glasses used in pretty much any passive 3D HDTV and most passive 3D monitors are all using the same technology (LG Home Cinema or Vizio Home Theater 3D HDTVs for example), and you could even use these in some movie theaters that rely on the same standard (RealD). And with the recent commotion regarding Sony’s plans to stop subsidizing the 3D glasses in movie theaters the idea to buy your own personal 3D glasses is becoming more attractive. And while there are a lot of options for such glasses already available, including quite expensive ones from different designer brands, there are also some brands making nice looking and comfortable glasses that won’t cost you a fortune, like for example Dimensional Optics and their brand new 3Dazzle and 3Razzle product lines. They offer a few different designs and come in four different color flavors: cherry, grape, lemon lime, blue ice. The glasses are available for $19.95 USD and $9.95 USD for the models from the 3Dazzle and 3Razzle product lines respectively. These new 3D glasses come with good quality optics, better than most cheaper passive 3D glasses you get with the purchase of a passive 3D HDTV and offered as an option and even better than the traditional reusable 3D glasses you get in movie theaters. They have a light and comfortable frame that you can wear without any discomfort for longer time and as I already mentioned, they won’t cost you a lot like some very expensive designer models that may look a bit nicer, but probably won’t provide you with a better 3D experience anyway. So do check these out and feel welcome to share your feedback if you already got a pair of them.
