    Introduction to 3D TV

    500px-Mitsubishi logo svg Technology sure is advancing quickly. It seemed like just yesterday we were all using tube TVs, and now, more recently, we're using HDTVs. But even HDTVs are becoming somewhat of a thing of the past. Why is that? Well it's because 3D TVs are here. Most TV experts agree this (3D TV) may be the peak of television for quite sometime. So, with that being said, if you're looking for a television that will keep up with technology advancements for a long time then 3D TVs are you're best option.

    Now that you're convinced 3D TVs are for you, we'll look at one of the best 3D TV manufactures, Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi has been one of the leading big screen companies for years, so it is no surprise they once again are at the top of the TV industry in the 3D TV category. Let's look more closely at the fundamentals and features of these 3D TVs offered up from Mitsubishi.

    The Fundamentals of 3D TV

    One of the great things about Mitsubishi is they focus on the fundamentals of their products. Mitsubishi gets the important functions working right. This focus on perfecting the basics is also apparent in Mitsubishi's 3D TVs. Now lets move on to those fundamentals of 3D TVs we've been talking about.

    How Does 3D Work?

    Even in real life, our two eyes put what we see into two images. An image is created by our right eye and an image is created by our left eye. Perceiving two images at once creates the perception of depth. So, to make a long story short, two images courtesy of our two eyes creates visual depth. 3D TVs work in this same way. Mitsubishi has perfected their 3D TVs to help us humans perceive depth from a 2D image. You're probably thinking two dimensional and depth kind of contradict each other so how does that work? Well that's where the glasses come in. Mitsubishi's state of the art 3D glasses allows our eyes to process the 2D image on screen and turn it into two images. Back to the way 3D TV works, two images equals depth. The Mitsubishi 3D glasses along with 3D TV creates two images and then you have a 3D picture.

    It's OK if you still don't understand how 3D technology works. What's more important is that the company making the TV using 3D technology knows how it works and Mitsubishi knows 3D inside out!

    A Closer Look at Mitsubishi 3D Features

    Mitsubishi's 3D TVs include some excellent features like digital light processing (DLP) technology and large screen sizes--making them almost unbeatable.

    DLP 3D TVs - Digital light processing 3D TVs add 3D technology to an already great technology. One of the best features of DLP 3D TVs is that they use a digital micro-mirror device (DMD). This DMD device essentially enables light to be outputted from the TV at speeds as fast as 4.6 micro-seconds. This speed allows the DLP 3D TV to deliver fast moving images (like in sports, action movies, etc.) without motion blur. DLP 3D TVs have other great benefits in that they offer large TV sizes and maintain affordable pricing. More information on DLP TVs can be found here.

    Large Screen Sizes: Mitsubishi's 3D TVs are made in sizes that will turn your home theater into a true theater. Mitsubishi's 3D TV sizes range from 65 inches to 82 inches You'll never have to leave your house again in order to see a movie on the big screen in 3D. Mitsubishi has been the clear leader in big screen technology. Mitsubishi was the first company to create a HDTV that surpassed the 70-inch mark. Now Mitsubishi has cleared the 80-inch mark - with 3D TVs! I think it's safe to say Mitsubishi is one of the clear leaders in big screen technology.
