IR transmitter on 3D Tv's


Standard Member
Hi guys, apologies in advance for the dumb question but I'm slightly confused.
Had a demo of the Sony HX803 and the Samsung C8000 and was told that the Samsung only has one transmitter to sync with the glasses, which, if you are facing the TV sits in the bottom left of the TV as opposed to the Sony which has an add-on transmitter which has 16? transmitters on it. The sales rep says that extra transmitters mean a more stable image in 3D - is this a true statement? I would have thought that the only benefit of having extra IR transmitters would have been a wider angle of the IR beam?
I was also shown the Panasonic TV which has 6 transmitters on the bottom of the panel.
If anyone has got these tv's then use your phones camera to see the IR signal when you are in 3D mode.
I thought that I knew which TV to get (C8000) but now a seed of doubt has been sewn in my mind and I'm more confused!
Any thoughts or comments welcomed. Cheers.
