Frequently asked questions More FAQs

  • What's the difference between Active & Passive 3D?

    There are two ways to watch 3D TV - Active and Passive. Active and Passive 3D refers to both the type of glasses you have to wear to watch 3D, and the 3D ready TV you are using.

    Active glasses contain LCD lenses that alternately 'block out' each eye depending on whether the left or right image is being displayed on the screen. They are referred to as active because they require a battery to operate the LCD lenses.

    Passive glasses do not require any power to operate them. They use polarisation to separate out the left and right image, then work with polarised TVs that deliver two images to the viewer. The TVs have a filter integrated into the screen, and when switched into 3D mode, the filter orientates the light emitting from the screen differently for the left and right image. Passive is the type of technology you may have seen in the cinema.

  • How can I watch Sky 3D at home?
