    If i buy a panasonic plasma TV then buy a Panasonic LED TV in 12 months time, will i be able to use the same glasses for each set or need more?

    I think the answer is "maybe". The active 3D manufacturers are consolidating on a standard for IR and Bluetooth glasses so that different brands can work together. However that means there is a risk that the ones you buy now (using a proprietary Panasonic IR standard) might not be compatible with TV models that come out next year. :rolleyes:

    They should have things agreed before people start to buy everything. From what i hear the better TV's always choose active but unless viewing on a very large TV the difference is very marginal if anything at all. The price of the active glasses should make them far better that passive.

    Bigger perhaps but I don't know about better since for the best 3D experience, there's only one choice and that's passive. (does anyone still seriously doubt this :))

    All the extra cost of active glasses does is allow the cost of the 3D TV to be lower in the first place rather than perhaps having to pay more for a passive set i.e. simply paying more for the glasses is unlikely to improve the 3D

    lets not turn this in to another passive verses active thread, stick to answering the OPs question please.
