DLP Link is a 3D syncing technology which is common with DLP projectors. It is a standard in the industry, so there are many different 3D glasses which are designed to be used with DLP Link.
The way it works, is that the 3D signal, whether it's frame packed, frame sequential, or side-by-side, is shown on the screen as a left eye image, red flash, right eye image, red flash.
When you put on DLP Link glasses, the glasses see the 'red flash' and go blank. Then the left eye opens, then they blank for the red flash, then the right eye opens, then they blank again for the red flash.
There is a thread in the 3D section of the forums about the W1070 and different glasses which have been used. There are cheap (sub $20) glasses which have strong reviews for their performance. I have the Sainsonic glasses which allow a bit of red flash though, and I have two sets of EStar glasses which let no red flash though. The 3D crosstalk is lower than any commercial theater I've been to, including IMAX 3D setups. There is ZERO crosstalk, which makes viewing 3D much more enjoyable.
So, DLP Link ready just means that you feed that projector a 3D signal from a capable player, in the proper format for the projector, and it will utilize DLP Link to show it on the projector. It's 'ready' to go. DLP Link ready. The projector may also offer options for other types of 3D syncing to be used. Such as an external RF emitter of some sort. But, that has extra cost, while with DLP Link you can get very good performance right out of the box with some decent DLP Link glasses.
Hope that clears things up some. My personal experience comes from DLP Link with the W1070. No buttons to push or anything, I just load the 3D disc, the projector identifies the incoming video as 3D (from Blu-ray 3D discs!) and I get a blurry, somewhat red image on screen. I put the glasses on, turn them on, and they immediately sync up on screen. It's slick enough that my 7 year old son has it all figured out.
