Hi Guys,

I've got an Optoma HD66 projector on its way over from the US.  It's a 3D 720p projector with the expected 120Hz refresh rate for 3D viewing.

My question is, are there specific 3D glasses that I'll have to purchase for these to view 3D content or can I purchase any 3D glasses?

Thanks for the help,
Lewis

You will need the NVidia's 3D computer video solution with the projector. (its the only solution out which works )

TV Solutions have a infra-red transmitter which syncs the video up with their glasses but the projector you have has nothing like that at all. so you will have to use the NVIDIA's glasses/INfra-red transmitter solution to do this. + you need the3D NVidia capable video card.

The projectors are just like the 3D Computer monitors.. they just have no smarts really for the 3D part of it. just a higher refresh rate to allow it.

This means a 3D blueray players will not work. You will have to use cyberlink's blueray player (with the above nvidia card/3D kit/glasses+ computer).
