Does Epson use the same synch pattern as Panasonic?

My local Bestbuy has 3 sets that are on clearance for $79. These are not the kits. The kit was on sale for $99.

The PS3 glasses will synch to the IR signal the 3010 is already sending to your Epson glasses.

The only thing you need to do to get them to work is turn them on.

N00b here. I just installed an Epson 6010 and have the Monster Vision 3D glasses. How do I pair them to work with my projector? Sorry if this has been answered...but I haven't found it yet.

I don't have the Monsters myself, but this is my understanding:

The monsters have an adapter that has an IR receiver. Your 6010 should have an IR emitter on the front around the lens, and somewhere on the back. If you place the IR receiver of the adapter in view of the IR emitter on the back of the 6010, it should send a synch signal to your Monster glasses. There's a little joystick on the adapter that will allow you to tune duty cycle (how long each lens is open) so that you can adjust the brightness/crosstalk tradeoff.

Hope that helps.

Never mind. I finally found the online user guide and found where the IR blaster was receiving a strong enough signal. Kinda was hoping not to have to use that as I now have to figure out how to hide the wires and blaster for a clean install.

Thank you! It does indeed as now I'll see if there is an IR emitter on the back too.

I bought the Epson glasses and they arrived 2 days before my 5010 is to come on Monday. I have a mr potato head and the epsons are very loose. Am I now to assume that whatever oher glasses I get will have a lesser image quality ?

Why wouldn't the monster glasses be the best if they have more light coming through ?

Did you notice that the arms are adjustable? There are two little switches on the inner sides, which can be used to lock the arms in a narrower position.

I just bought another pair (now have 2) of the Sony PlayStation glasses. Although my projector doesn't exhibit very much cross-talk at all, I have to admit that by comparing the Epson glasses with the Sony PlayStation glasses that the Sony's reduce crosstalk (at least with my 3010) better than the original Epson glasses.

I really like the fact that the Sony's are rechargeable - but I guess the glasses (sadly) are disposable once the lithium-ion internal battery wears out. The instructions suggest that the battery is "non-replaceable", which sucks. Does anyone know if the Panasonic (or other compatible brands) have internal batteries that can be replaced when / if needed?

The PlayStation glasses work every bit was well as my Epson glasses ... the color temp. of these glasses is a touch warmer and maybe the glasses are just a tiny bit darker also. You'd be hard pressed to see this unless doing very careful A / B comparisons. This isn't a drawback to me . . . it's simply the characteristic of the manufacturing from one maker vs. another. Both the Epson and Sony are great. When I managed to pick up both pairs for $39.95 each, I certainly couldn't complain.

This was a big reason why I decided to go with the OEM Epson glasses for my 5010 instead of rechargable glasses - in the rechargeables, once the Lithium battery wears out, shorts out, or otherwise fails (which it eventually will), the battery can't easily be replaced, if at all... btw, the Panasonics are rechargeable as well. I purchased 6 pair of the Epson 3D glasses so far, and hoping to pickup 2 more pair yet. I purchased a bulk lot of 50 Sony batteries on eBay for just $18.00 (the name-brands do have a history of having longer life than a lot of the lesser brands), so those batteries should last me for quite awhile, with a 10 year shelf life... I've had my projector and the glasses since February and have used them for 3D quite a bit, and am still on all of the original batteries; I believe they are supposed to last for approx. 80 hours (40 movies!) per battery...

FEEL an awesome 3D Blu-ray movie in the Frey Theater - Now with projection in glorious "FREYMAX" 3D!

My "Dollar Tree" stores carry three packs of 2032 batteries for a dollar. If you want to stock up on some additional batteries for cheap. They're Sunbeam brand. Just a little cheaper than 50 for $18, but you also don't have to buy 50 at a time. wink.gif

So my 3010 is coming in this Friday and I want to be ready for 3d content... but am I?

I have some files on my PC that are SBS. I have the Radeon HD 5550 Video Card which advertises it as "stereoscopic" 3d. Is this the real/good stuff :P? Can I use the included active shutter glasses on these SBS movies I have and get the full experience?

I would call SBS files "not the full experience". For basically 2-3 reasons-


1. SBS-50% format have half the horizontal resolution of either 2D or "good" 3D. Both left+right pics are squeezed into a single frame.
2. It probably doesn't contain the original HD audio.
3. It's probably pirated content, right?

It won't look as good and it won't sound as good.

I, with my man sized head, find them uncomfortable too. My wife and kids seem to have no complaints.

err, no coment :P...

thanks for the info though! I'll make sure to do a 3d blu ray to get the full effect. But for the time being, this will be as good as it gets huh? I just want to make sure this isn't one of those, converting 2d to 3d, or just as good/bad as using red/blue glasses as an alternate to active shutter glasses.
