You may recall that I posted a question about the LCD shutter glasses system for 3D and I promised I'd let you know how I got on. Well, it arrived today. Nice big box, modular packaging with the DVDs (3 of them) on top, glasses etc beneath. Those awfully nice people at Customs and Excise slapped an extra £16.04 on the price. The power supply, as I anticipated, is American - but no problem as the actual unit to be powered takes a DC 9V so picking up an adaptor is no big deal. I already had one in the house anyway. The system works by putting a composite feed into the box which then outputs to your TV and sends the appropriate signals to your LCD specs. Your DVD player needs to put out such a signal. My Samsung does it simultaneously with scart and gave me a surprise, more of that later. We fiddled for a while with increasing frustration until we discovered that there was a menu on the DVD which lets you choose whether to watch it in 3D or flat. Doh! Here's the shock. It WORKS and it is amazing but it even works with my line doubler. The effect is not anything like as flickery as I expected. I did have to change the setting on my DVD player as you need to output pure NTSC, not the Pal cheat. The DVD was outputting RGB but sending the composite signal to the glasses. I would have bet money it wouldn't work with the Lido but you live and learn. I got full blown, full colour, image enhanced, working 3D. I recommend the glasses to anyone. It is a lot of fun. The effect works best when things are moving slowly. It did occur to me that the doubler may interfere when things move fast but the computer animation on the DVDs doesn't seem to be motion blurred so you get a strobing effect anyway. I would expect you to lose the effect of 3D when scanning fast forward of freezing frames (you do lose it) but I found that sometimes the effect doesn't come back when you start playing normally again. No problem, just pause and start again and it seems to kick back in. This I suspect does have something to do with the Lido or maybe the unit gets confused. The best disk is the haunted house one. They're all rubbish for stories of course but HH gives some really amazing hovery objects slowly coming out of the screen and wintery leafless trees were just made for 3D. Buy and enjoy. I won't bother letting the LCD group know as this mini-review is based around my Barco CRT and I don't know if it would work with LCD projectors... What I can say is use CRT for projecting piccies and only have LCD in yer 3D glasses.
