ViewSonic Brings 3D Home

ViewSonic's new 3D glasses work with any of the company's 3D-capable DLP projectors.

ViewSonic has announced their PGD-150 active shutter glasses that will allow viewers to watch 3D content on any of the company’s 3D-capable DLP projectors. The glasses are priced at just $99 apiece, which is a reasonable list price this early in the game.

This announcement also keeps front projection systems in the mix for those who want a giant HD image for under $1,200, and who also want to be able to enjoy 3D content as it becomes available. The downside is that you need to have a room where you can adequately control the lighting (which generally means no windows), but this can get a huge viewing experience at a reasonable price.

The glasses also work with many ViewSonic projector models that do not have high enough native resolution for HD images, but they could appeal to the education market where the cost savings is likely to be a significant factor.
