One of the big bugaboos that people often criticize about the 3D video format is the bulk, awkwardness and overall unattractiveness of the 3D glasses that are necessary to view 3D content.

GUNNAR Optiks is a manufacturer of performance eyewear for computer gaming and outdoor applications, and the company’s line of 3D products addresses the passive 3D market where high-performance consumer video manufacturers such as Runco, SIM2 and Wolf Cinema operate. 

The Carlsbad, Calif.-based optical company offers a line of stylish and comfortable to wear 3D glasses that employ circular polarization and linear polarization, and the company recommends that once an installer confirms what passive 3D format a manufacturer uses, then that company can pair the appropriate pair of 3D glasses to complete the 3D video system installation.

GUNNAR says that its circular polarization products work with RealD technologies and its linear polarization products work with IMAX films and iZ3D monitors. Additionally, it says that its eyewear offers i-AMP3D optical quality lenses and the ability to present 40 lines of resolution when measured using standard testing procedures. The lenses are optimized to minimize crosstalk and they have true, medium density filters that treat all colors equally.
