LG Electronics (LG) announced yesterday (26 Dec) that, it’s going to introduce its newest collection of 3D glasses in the first quarter of 2012. The new 3D glasses: the F310, the F320 and specially only the F360 designed by none other than renowned Eye-wear designer Alain Mikli, are lighter, more comfortable, stylish, fashionable and stunning looking spectacles with curved lenses and clean frame structure of transitioned 3D glasses.
“Compared to active shutter glasses, LG’s 3D glasses are far more comfortable to wear and much more affordable, making it possible for large groups and entire families to watch 3D programs and movies together,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG is addressing two of the biggest barriers to 3D acceptance head-on and we’re confident consumers will react favorably to our strategy in the coming year.”
With a mere weigh of 13.5 grams and slim frame, the F310 (Top Right) is 20% less than last year’s default and it’s curved more for a better fit. As for better grip, it will never come out, therefore you can have your utmost Excitement while experiencing 3D Cinema. Based on Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology, the F320 (Top Left) clip-on design fits to regular glasses-wearers for 3D TVs. If compare to the previous generation clip-on 3D glasses, it is 25% less than the earlier ones. It is Alain Mikli who designed the stylish F360 half-rim frames (Top Middle) which only weighs 16 grams. Having curved lenses, the F360 covers most of the wearer’s face and executes the immersive CINEMA 3D experience.
Due to uncomfortable fittings and expensive glasses, consumers are reluctant to adopt 3D TV in the home. But, all 3D glasses from LG, can also be worn in theaters showing 3D movies since both CINEMA 3D and Theaters utilize the same FPR and RealD technologies. Though the price have not been decided yet, still due to LG’s success in 3D TVs, (LG’s share of the global 3D TV market increased from 7.6% during the 1st quarter of 2011 to 14% by September 2011) it will be cheap in price and comfortable to wear comparing to others.
