Receives infra-red signals from the television.

The liquid crystal shutter open/close timing is controlled by receiving infra-red signals from the television, which provide 3D expression of the images.

If the eyewear stops receiving infra-red signal from the television, the power automatically switches off after 5 minutes.

„ „


Controls the images for 3D viewing.

The left and right liquid crystal shutters are alternately opened and closed in time with the left side and right side images that are alternately displayed on the television to achieve the 3D effect.
