3D on Acer H5360

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, first, sorry if this is in the wrong section as my question pertains to both 3d displays, and a 3d source.


Right now, I have an Acer H5360 DLP projector (That I absolutely love) but I haven't tried out the 3D. I'm moving in with my girlfriend this weekend. Long story short, I need a TV, and an additional DVD/BR player, so I want to get something capable of 3D.

I'm pretty ignorant to 3D technology, but I do know there are various types of glasses that match various sources.

I am looking at buying this bundle as it seems to be great bang-for-buck, but my question is, will this blu-ray player/glasses work with my Acer H5360 as well?

Thank you all.

Just to correct you....
" but I do know there are various types of glasses that match various sources."

No, glasses follow the display / display type.

The projector glasses have to be active, and TV is a passive 3D TV and uses passive glasses.

And you also need a 3D converter like the VIP 3D Theatre or cheaper option the 3D Displayer for Bluray only 3D playback. Cheapest glasses option is DLP link active shutter glasses.

Thanks for that correction. So am I correct in assuming, there are only two types of glasses-active & passive, there aren't glasses for LCD vs DLP as well, or anything like that as well? Any active glasses will work with my projector?

My projector is 3D ready... has an option on the menu to toggle 3D on and off, I thought that all I needed was a 3d source, such as the blu-ray player listed above that comes with the LED TV.

Will that blu-ray player work with both displays (DLP projector & LED TV), I just need two different types of glasses?


Thanks guys for explaining this technology.

Still need something like the 3D VIP or Optoma 3D-XL, 3D-Ready is misleading and doesn't mean that it will plug and play with any source. The glasses for the projector will need to be DLP-Link while an active tv will use either IR or RF glasses (I think there may be a way to use IR with the 3D-XL box)

Take note that a lot of 3D Ready also use the term PC 3D Ready which can also mean only available on their PC port. Not all resolutions supported are standard video like 1280x720P/60,120hz; a lot show up as 1280x768/60. So review the specs carefully. What matters most are the resolutions & timings over HDMI for compatibility with BluRay and other sources.

I use the Acer H5360 with the VIP Theatre and VIP RF glasses and emitter. Works great! This projector rocks in 3D.

Thanks.

I got my 3D-XL from kyro.com they had a good price and shipped it out quickly, however I bought 2 for a dual projector system and now they are out of stock but if you google 3D-XL there are other places to get it just as cheap. here is your best bet http://www.pcnation.com/web/details....08&item=GB1610

Hi..I just ordered the Acer 5360 on Amazon for 420 dollars. Since I want 3D as well, my option now is to buy Optoma 3DXL for 220 dollars - this totals up to 650 dollars. For the same amount of money you actually get 3d projector not 3d compatible like my Acer. So a bit disappointed if I made a mistake.

Now I have just come some threads in this forum and else where where they are saying that you need the Optoma 3DXL only if one is trying to play 3d blu ray.

If say I have some 3d HSBS movies on my laptop - I was told that if I can make my laptop identify the projector a second output source and if it manages to output to 120HZ, then all I need is a cheap 3D convertor box that is available in Amazon in the 30-90 dollar range and I am all set.

I of course need to buy the DLP glasses - which I anyway have to buy whether I go to Optoma 3DXL route or the NVidia route.

Can you please confirm if this feasible? a combination of Laptop+cheap 60 dollare 3d box like monoprice+Acer 5360 projector?

I have the Acer H5360 and while I use it with Nvidia 3D Vision, I'm pretty sure the projector doesn't need anything other than the DLP Link glasses to work in 3D. Because there is an emiter built into the projector. Just enable DLP link on the 5360's option menu.

Hi. Just to clarify - you have a computer (HTPC/Laptop) with Nvidia graphics card and you also use Nvidia glasses....right?

I am just wondering whether it is possible to use this projector, with nothing but a laptop with an integrated Intel graphics card and DLP link glasses? assuming i set my laptop to output at 120HZ and I use some software like powerdvd or stereoscopic player to drive the 3d content on my laptop (HSBS files)
post #13 of 15
Yeah, I use Nvidia glasses. But the H5360 has the option to do 3d with Nvidia, or the Texas Inst DLP Link glasses that do not require an emitter. The projector does somthing like transmiting a signal hidden in the frames to enable the active shutter DLP link glasses.

These guys claim to be experts on your question. You can ask them

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray Disc Player ($150 or less)
Monoprice 3d creator ($100)
DLP-LINK glasses ($40)

This is what you need.

Best for the buck option

I got the exact same pj and above kit and 3d is awesome

I dont think I will play 3d blu rays. Here in India..one 3D blu ray disk is equivalent to a days salary. Plus we got no netflix nor blockbuster or redbox. So all the content will be 3d files that I will get from my friend on a hard drive. Given this scenario. Will the 5360, mono price convertor , 3d link glasses and laptop work?

I have ordered the 5360. So I Spent another 200 for the monoprice and a pair of dlp glasses?

On Amazon the monoprice got below average reviews and when I type 3d convertor it has lots of options starting from 30 dollars....all these work like monprice?
Thanks again for all your help
