Mitsubishi 3D Starter Pack
If you have a Mitsubishi 3D TV made before 2011 most likely you will need a Mitsubishi 3D Starter Pack.
The TV itself has the technology to view in 3D but will need some additional things help it along, like an emitter and shutter glasses. In this article I will explain what the 3D starter pack is and what is inside of it.
Why Do You Need A Starter Pack
It would be nice to watch movies and games in 3D. The technology has come such a long way since the red and yellow flimsy glasses that had to be worn in the past. It is so much more realistic looking. It is also very exciting to play video games like Grand Turismo 5 in 3D.
3D TVs have the technology built into them but still need a few things. What you need to complete your viewing experience is a source to play the 3D disc. For this you need a 3D Blu-ray player or a PL3. This does not come in the starter pack but must be purchased seperately. In addition to the source you’ll need shutter glasses, and to make the glasses work with the TV you need a emitter. It sounds very confusing but it really isn’t and well worth it.
What’s In The Kit?
The starter kit includes 2 pairs of 3D shutter glasses, the emitter, a HDMI cable, and remote. The only additional thing you will need is a 3D ready TV and a source like BluRay 3D player or PL3. Otherwise, everything you need is in the box to start watching movies or sports in 3D. Your family is going to love this.
The kit also includes a Disney Blu-ray showcase disc. These are 3D videos clips so you can see everything that is available in 3D released by Disney.
Everything in the Mitsubishi 3D Starter Pack hooks up in a matter of minutes. I don’t like instructions as it is. The more complicated they are, the more confused I get, and it doesn’t take much to confuse me. The instructions are so simple most people have it set up in 10 minutes. The simpler the better and the quicker you can start enjoying movies in 3D. The quality is really awsome, the picture just pops out at you . This is watching TV in a whole new way, it’s not that old fashion layered look.
The emitter is a little box that helps the TV work with the shutter glasses. The TV screen and the glasses are actually blinking so fast you can’t tell. So you need someting to make them blink in sync, that’s where the emitter comes in.
The 3D Shutter Glasses
ever wonder why you see blurred or double vision without 3D glasses….that’s because your looking at two different images at the same time.
The Mitsubishi 3D shutter glasses are easy to wear. It’s important that the glasses feel comfortable on you since you will be wearing them for a couple of hours. I don’t want to wear something that is distracting and annoying. The 3D glasses can fit over your eyeglasses so no need to worry about not being able to see the TV.
Imagine blinking one eye, then the other, and keep alternating the blinking so fast that your alternating blinking each eye 60 times per second for a total of 120 blinks per second for both eyes. That’s what the shutter glasses do but they do it so fast you can’t tell anything is happening. The shutter glasses are synchronized, by the emitter, with the 2 alternating images on the TV screen and the result is superior quality 3D image.
Active vs Passive Glasses: Active glasses are the type found in the 3D starter Kit. They are a bit heavier and more expensive but deliver a superior 3D image. Passive Glasses are the type used in movie theaters. They are lighter and less expensive but lack in detail.
Since this is a Mitsubishi product it will only work on Mitsubishi 3D ready TV’s. It’s a bit of a draw back that it won’t work on other brands. If you have a Samsung 3D TV click here for the Samsung 3D Starter Kit.
