I am remodeling and don't have a TV right now. I will be buying a TV in the next few weeks. I was going to buy a Panasonic TH 65PF12UK. Now with all the 3D hype, I'm not sure what to do, buy a cheap TV and see what happens, or buy the Panasonic as planned.
1) What's the real difference between a 3D ready TV and a regular TV. Information seems sketchy and/or unavailable. I found this article but it seems weak.
Difference is that the 3D tv's have processors specifically made to process the two images to create the 3D effect. If the TV is not 3D ready it will not do 3D.
2) Would the Panasonic TH 65PF12UK be 3D ready? It supports 1080p60. It also has upgradable plug-in-boards that might be able to be used to upgrade to HDMI 1.4. Also, since the TV can handle dual HD-SDI input I'm pretty sure it could handle the 3D bandwidth requirements?
I can't say for sure, but the answer is probably not.
3) When people mention 3D and 1080p120, do they really mean 120 progressive frames per second, or are they getting confused with 60 interlaced frames per second with 120 fields?
They just mean it's 1080p and 60HZ for each eye so 120HZ
4) What's the difference between HDMI 1.3 and 1.4 when it relates to 3D? This article on Wikipedia (I know Wikipedia is not an "end all" source) shows that the bandwidth is the same for 1.3 and 1.4 but specifically shows that 1.3 cannot do 3D.
1.4 has "dual stream" capabilities. They have the same bandwidth but only HDMI 1.4 can do 1080P 3D images. HDMI 1.3 CAN DO 3D but it will only do 1080i, not 1080p
5) What does it mean to have a TV that has dual drivers and is capable of dual scan?
not a clue
Any help will be most appreciated!
