Question regarding Active 3D projectors

Hi,

I have a question regarding 3D projectors.

Is it possible to use passive 3D glasses with a projector which is a Active 3D projector?

We are looking for a projector between 5000 and 10,000 Lumens (preferably Panasonic but open to other options)which is a passive 3D projector. But so far all we have been able to find is active 3D projector.

Regards.

Passive glasses use would require a two projector setup with polarizers on them and a device to split the signal so that the image for the right eye is sent to one projector and the image for the left eye sent to the other projector.

And additionally, a polarization-preserving screen, just in case the OP hadn't considered that as well. Unless a chromatic solution such as Omega 3D is considered, which, while providing pretty much zero ghosting, has a few other issues to contend with.
