3D Blu-ray players with 3D depth settings.

I currently use a Sony UBP-X800 for playing 3D blu rays on my projector. The problem is I changed to a Benq projector that has no 3D depth settings and the factory set depth is too much to be comfortable.


So my question is: Is there a good 3D blu ray player brand that has 3D depth settings as standard?


Thanks in advance .

The Sony X800 has a screen-size setting. That setting will force the depth separation to try to maintain a max of about 2.5" for infinity objects based on your screen size. You can try different screen sizes regardless of your true screen size. See page 20 of your manual--Select Screen Settings and select the type of Display as Projector and set the TV screen size for 3D.

If you want a player that sets depth, then go to an HD Sony player previous to the Sony X700 - X800 series. These will have a depth setting. You could have one player for UHD and one for 3D.

That sounds perfect, I'll give it a try. Thanks.

I hadn't really realized there was a depth setting available and my equipment may or may not have one, but saying it did, what content is generally used to set this? Is there anything on the Spears and Munsil disks?

I have never known a blu-ray player to have a 3D depth setting, but my Sony XBR 55HX929 does have a depth setting on the television, itself.

If you don't have the need for play 4K 2D blurays, then the Sony S6700 is ideal for 3D. Check out the link to the manual.

https://www.sony.com/electronics/sup.../45796691M.pdf

Page 23 states the features for selecting 3D depth adjustments, and Page 26 states the screen size adjustment. Plus this also does 2D to 3D conversion. The screen size will try to limit infinity objects to 2.5". The depth adjustment will correct that in some cases if the eye separation is too wide or too little. It will also move objects out of the screen, and into the screen, to help with popouts.

I have this bluray player along with the Sony X800 for 4K, the S6700 is great for more 3D 1080p adjustment than the X800, and surprisingly low cost. The S6700 can also upscale to 4K 2D if you have a 4K TV, but it can't play 4K bluray content.

As it turns out, my OPPO UDP-203 has both 2D to 3D conversion depth and screen size. The screen size had defaulted to 42" since I didn't have 3D capability when I set it up. I changed that to 125" and it opened my depth right up. I can't wait to re-watch some of the movies I had already thought were awesome.

I'm not familiar with when 2D to 3D conversion ever happens and whether the default value of 8 is appropriate.

Also, I did see that the Spears and Munsil disk has 3D support but I didn't get a chance to try it.

I thought I was getting it, but I guess I'm not.
I found the 3D support on the Spears and Munsil disk and I was able to bring up a nice screen for positive (or negative) depths. I assumed changing the TV Size would impact the distance between side by side images. It didn't. I then tried adjusting the 2D->3D conversion value and it didn't change it either. What am I missing here?

Thanks for the Sony 6700 suggestion, 3DBob. Picked one up a few days ago strictly for 3D and the adjustable settings make it much easier to tweak my screen settings when watching 3D.
