 Most of us have flocked to an IMAX theatre with our friends or family to watch a 3D movie. It can be a kind of otherworldly experience. Now, with the advancements in television technology, a new range of TVs brings the same thrill to our living rooms. We are about to experience a whole new way of watching the television in the comfort of our own homes. The 3D TV is just around the corner.
So, what exactly is a 3D TV? To put it simply, it is the latest gadget in the television world. As the name itself suggests, a 3D TV lends a three-dimensional effect to your favorite game show, movie, or video game. There is not much difference between the 3D TV and the 3D LCD TV; effects are the same for both TVs.

Not delving too deeply into the mechanics of the technology, the 3D TV uses the technique of stereoscopic capture, multi-view capture, or 2D plus depth imaging, and a 3D display to project the image into a three-dimensional field.

The 3d TV works on the same principle that the human eye works on. In the real world, we see a three-dimensional object. The left and the right eye perceive an object at a variation of two different angles, sending two different images to the brain, which then processes it and presents a three-dimensional image to us. This is also the concept behind the 3D TV.

Various television manufacturing companies — Philips, Samsung, Sony, LG, Toshiba — are all developing their own 3D TVs. Panasonic boasts full HD 3D TV. Samsung offers one of the best options; they have combined LCD, LED, and plasma technology in their 3D LED TV. The Philips 3D TV sets have excellent 3D effects.

This is all new technology, which most companies are still experimenting with. Research is being conducted to develop a 3D TV with better resolution. TV companies are developing a new generation of TVs called holographic TVs. People in the know predict that this TV will be even more advanced. The 3D TV and the holographic TV may mark the future of television viewing.
