It's not whether your theory works or not, it's whether you can make it for x-amount that the mass market will buy. Right now there are many 3D producing method that actually works with some better than other.
So go and work out the bugs and patent it then convince the manufacturer. Good luck.
So, I've been doing lots of research and even posted on other forums , but have gotten mixed answers on my question. Basically in short, my question is, is it possible to turn a non 3D TV into a 3D TV (using hypothetical equipment explained later)? Now before anyone just quickly answers that question "no" hear me out and listen to my arguments first.
First of all, to my understanding, a summary of what makes a 3D TV different from an non 3D is the software/hardware INSIDE the tv that can interpret the 3D bluray signals, convert non 3D content to 3D and communicate with the shutter glasses to tell them when to open/close each eye (along with a standard refresh rate of 120Hz or higher). Now taking all of that into account, and even if I am missing a few things on my understanding, lets pretend there is this hypothetical gadget. For sake of argument lets just say its all built into a 3D bluray player. This bluray player communicates with shutter glasses and in short, basically just sends the "dual" image to the screen of the TV, and inside the player does all rendering, communicating with glasses, and anything else that is done behind the scenes, using the TV just as a display for the images being sent to it. Technically speaking, I do not see how this would NOT turn my regular TV into a 3D one.
Now lets turn this hypothetical gadget into reality. Ignoring the fact that I can just go out and buy a 3D TV instead, if I were to get one of those new 3D laptops that come with the shutter glasses, bluray player, etc., and providing they have a HDMI output, just use my TV as a display for the laptop, then technically my theory above should work right?
My current TV is a LG 55LH40. (1080p, 120Hz, LCD). Now I did hear a snag that could disrupt my theory. It was actually in an article here on cnet. It basically said that all HDMI ports on TV's only have an input capacity of 60Hz or LESS. Being that 3D needs MINIMUM of 120Hz (60 each eye), this would obviously hurt my theory, but if that is true, lets ignore it just for sake of argument. So, what are everyone's professional opinions on my theory here?
