I was wondering which Active 3D Glasses are considered to be the best for the Samsung F8500 ???  As i'm looking for comfort, fit and performance. And as I understand Samsung allows us to use other manufactures glasses as well.
I've read that some sync better than other Active Glasses with Bluetooth and others have better fields of view and so on....

what are your thoughts?

I notice in a lot of compatibility options shown are the st50's or st30's. Are they interchangeable with the st60's? Should I consider them the same? Also, I found a pair on Amazon with these descriptions:



Support newest bluetooth 3D TVs of Samsung/Panasonic/LG, and Epson RF Projectors
Bluetooth communication method, work without emitter, Auto power off function, energy efficiency
Button Battery supports 100 hours continuously working time
High transmission lenses with brighter 3D video image, high-tech light-speed LCD shutter technology
High quality stereoscopic 3D solution, detachable Arms, light design, 27g only

yet the list of compatible tv's doesn't include the st60. Can I just assume that they will work anyway?

I have an Optoma 3D-XL converter hooked up to an ACER H5360 projector. I am using Comcast for the 3D signal.

I purchased the Optoma BC-100 rf emitter and hooked to the back of the 3D-XL with no success in syncing the SSG-4100GB glasses.

Obviously I have no grasp of how this technology works considering my assumption that the Optoma emitter would be the solotion. Is there additional information regarding how to do this, or is it simply proprietary equipment and I need to move on to another solution?

Thanks for any help

I've been reading around the tinterwebs for an answer to these questions for a few weeks.  The HE6 emitter (by 3DTV Corp), I've found on Amazon (dot com), will plug into the 3D VESA socket - even if the port was intended for use with ZigBee compatible emitters (I'm assuming but would expect VESA signalling is just a standards based signalling?); you can use this to enable use with Bluetooth active shutter glasses like the Samsung SSG-5100GB.  I've tested the emitter on an Optoma HD131Xe, with the Samsung glasses, and Hi Shock Pro5 glasses from 3DTV Corp (came in the starter bundle with the emitter).

 

The HE6 emitter won't work with the ZigBee RF glasses though.  If you need compatibility with those; the BC100 dongle is the way to go.  I bought a pair of the 3D Now 3DN-6000 RF glasses, and a BC100 clone emitter, initially, but was annoyed that the Samsung glasses I'd bought in anticipation of the projector's 3D features, wouldn't work.  This was what now seems like an eternity ago before I was aware there was so much disparity and lack of good information about consumer 3D gear.  I thought passive (polarized) lenses, and active shutter.  What else does one need eh?  Maybe supported framerates?  Fair enough....but the hell ride I've had - I was not prepared for that.  Oh well, anway - I have working 3D now and this was my first consumer 3D foray!

 

(I'm still a newbie here so can't post links yet, but if you can't find the emitter; private message me)

no bother...

i answered my own quesion. i also bought 3 new pair for 61USD. Just received them today and i am so happy with my purchase. they are rechargeable, paired the second i pressed the button and come with a usb charge cable, a cloth, and a soft bag in which to put them.
they also aren't some ten dollar ones i've seen, either. way more substantial. so glad i took that leap
thanks anyway

Using IR glasses with RF projector?

I recently upgraded projectors. The problem is that the new projector uses RF for 3D and the old projector used IR. I have a lot of IR glasses. Is there an adapter, like the Monster Ir-Rf converter, that will allow Rf-IR conversion?

Thanks,
Jason

I feel your pain. I recently did the same-Epson 3010 (IR) to Epson 5030 (RF). No adapter like you're looking for that I'm aware of.

I'm kinda shocked how long we have had 3D TV's and there is still confusion about glasses compatibility.

First of all, you can not go by the brand to determine if glasses are compatible. Sony for example has made many TV's with Active 3D (some IR, and some Bluetooth RF), and Sony has also made many TV's with Passive 3D. So you need to find out which type it is based on the specific model (NOT THE BRAND).

When it comes to just Active 3D TV's, there are two different types of glasses only.
1 ) IR (Infrared), and
2 ) Bluetooth (also know as just RF, or Bluetooth RF)

So there are really only 3 types of glasses to choose from.

I have a lot of experience with this and it really annoys me sometimes. About an hour ago after buying a new Sony TV with Active 3D with Bluetooth RF at Bestbuy, the sales guy insisted the Samsung brand RF 3D glasses wouldn't work. But guess what... they did. The sales guy didn't know that RF was in fact bluetooth... His initial argument was that he owned a Sony TV before and tried bluetooth 3D glasses and they didn't work. The ignorance was unbelievable... He didn't believe me when I told him Sony has made TV's with passive 3D, as well as TV's with Active 3D with both (IR and Bluetooth RF)... It felt great to prove I was right... but a bad experience overall.

So a lot of the time, even though 3D glasses will specify certain models, they will likely be compatible with many many more TV's.

Do your research. Don't rely on sales people cause they don't always know either, as convincing as they may sound...

Hope this helps someone out there. Thank goodness for forums like this, but we really shouldn't need them... 2 types of Active 3D glasses... that's it. When in doubt, test it...

"So there are really only 3 types of glasses to choose from."

I agree , one of the biggest problems is lack of 3D knowledge of the sales people.

I bought some xpand 3d glasses at Best Buy only because of a lot of my own online research. The sales people at the Stores have very little knowledge about the 3D compatibility issues........... or non issues.
