Panasonic goes for ‘ultra-light’ 3D specs

Panasonic is still firmly wedded to its ‘active’ 3D TV system, and to help overcome criticisms that its 3D spectacles are too heavy – and expensive – when compared to ‘passive’ specs, Panasonic is introducing a lightweight range of glasses.

Pannasonic’s prosaically named TY-EW3D models were released in Japan last week and will migrate to European and US markets soon. And they are lightweight, at 26 grams for small and medium-sized versions, and 27g for the larger size. Usable life is an adequate 3 hours from a 2-minute charge, and 25 hours if charged for 30 minutes.
