That's really cool.

I was hoping someone would invent something like this.

Are there reviews out to tell you how well it works?

This device sounds incredible (if it works). However, I prefer passive glasses.

It should work fine... as I understand it, these guys are partnering with/taking over distribution for VIP, the folks who came out with the 3D Theatre & 3D Displayer last year. 60hz displays will likely exhibit some flicker with 3D content.

I was upset with myself for spending so much on HT junk without pre-emting 3D. As a result, for the time being, I went cheap with a $AU300 PC monitor. But if I hear enough positve reviews on this product it could be a great addition to my HT. Anybody with one wanna comment?

Because I personally believe passive technology is better, this system, though potentially phenomenal, will not work for me because it uses active shutter glasses.

However, I am still going to follow developments on this product with keen interest. Pricing will be a major factor.

I'm on another AVS thread (at least one other person on this one is too) and I've heard some pretty positive reviews about it. I spoke with the director of sales who said a new model should be available mid to late February 2012. This new model adds multiple vertical sync rates which is helpful for those of us who fell in between the 60 and 120Hz supported by the original model. My home theater projector has a v-sync rate of 100Hz max. I would have had to use the 60Hz rate on the current model. The new one will support 96Hz and, according to what I've been "told", flicker and brightness should be virtually unaffected at that rate. I think the new rates supported are 60, 72, 96 and 120Hz. The higher the v-sync you can use, the better. If you decide you may want to buy this product, check your max sync rate and touch base with those who have it. I'll probably be one of the early ones getting the new model. I've talked to people who say it works fine at 60Hz, but that's probably pretty subjective and depends on your eyes and (probably) the display you have. One thing about this device is that it can support full 1080p (unlike some other technologies).

Now here's the ouch part....It's $599 plus a $179 starter pack (emitter and pair of glasses). Extra glasses are $129. The emitter and glasses appear to be proprietary (or so I was told). If you've already got a projector (which I do and a 120" screen), it beats buying a 3D projector. I too prefer a passive setup, but that's WAY out of my price range for the time being. Hopefully this technology will serve as a bridge until prices come down. If anyone is really interested in that sort of setup and has some dough, search on "Ultimate 3D Projection" on the AVS forum. Read from the start and you'll learn a lot about the polarization of light, optical filters, screens, etc. There are some very knowledgeable, and clever people doing some pretty interesting things (many of those "things" are not, however, inexpensive).

They are currently $450 + $30 shipping for the box and two pairs of glasses.
