I'm thinking of getting these glasses and don't think I need the emitter/adapter if I also get one of the Panasonic checkerboard capable players. I'm sure you'd need the adapter for content from cable or satellite. I've got a Mits 73736.
To be more precise, the emitter and the adapter are two separate things.
converts the various 3D formats to checkerboard for the TV to display the picture.
All Mits 3D Ready DLPs require the adapter, except the 2010 models ending in 738 or 838, which do the conversion to checkerboard internally after a firmware update. The only exception would be using certain 3D Bluray players that can output the checkerboard format directly as your source.
is a device to send IR signals to the glasses to sync the left and right eye views.
Glasses are built to match the ouput codes of the emitter and vice versa, so any glasses you buy need to have the proper emitter. That being said, the Samsung and Mits glasses were recently found to be compatible, as they use the same codes. The 3D Heaven glasses in question were also designed to be used with the Mits or Samsung emitters. (the new Samsung 3DTVs have the emitter built in).
You can buy any other brand of glasses, as long as you get the appropriate (matching) emitter, which has a VESA connector to plug into the Mits TV.
Another type of active 3D glasses is called DLP-Link. These glasses do not require an emitter, as they use a special "white flash" signal that is emitted by the DLP chip as part of the picture itself. They will work with 3D Ready Mits TVs, but as stated above, most TVs will still require the adapter.
You can purchase the Starter Pack 3DC-1000 or the Adapter Pack 3DA-1. Both come with the adapter itself, a remote, and an HDMI cable.
The Starter Pack adds an emitter, and two pairs of matching glasses, plus a 3D sample disc.
If you buy the Adapter Pack, you will also need to purchase DLP-Link glasses which require no emitter, OR glasses with a matching emitter.
Since the Starter Pack 3DC-1000 comes with the emitter and two pairs of glasses, these 3D Heaven glasses are designed to be added to that setup.
To use them without the Starter Pack emitter, you will need to purchase the Mits emitter separately from Mits parts (800) 553-7278. Order Part #SSG-2100ME/ZA.
Hope this helps.
