Frame Packing

Frame Packing consists of two images or frames, one for the left eye and one for the right eye that are ‘packed’ together into one frame. This single frame is then displayed to the user. The key feature of Frame Packing is that each frame contains the full resolution, rather than the resolution halving due to more than one image.

Top/bottom

Top/bottom uses two frames, on top of each other to create the 3D image. The top frame is for the left eye and the bottom frame for the right; these frames are merged into one image by the output device and made viewable by the glasses worn by the viewer. Each frame is half its normal vertical resolution, which allows less powerful graphics cards to output this format.

Side by side

Side by side 3D uses two frames next to each other, one for each eye. These frames are then processed into one image by the output device and made viewable by the 3D glasses. Each frame has half its normal horizontal resolution, which allows less powerful graphics cards to output this format.

Frame Sequential

Frame Sequential 3D uses two images or frames one for each eye; frames are displayed one after each other at such a rate that you perceive only one 3D image.

3D Sync Invert

DLP Link technology is used to connect the 3D glasses to the projector. This means that the 3D glasses automatically connect to the projector without human intervention.

Stereoscopic 3D uses two images to create the 3D effect, one for the right eye and one for the left. When the 3D glasses are connected, they have a 50/50 chance of connecting each eye to the correct image on the screen.

Should the content not be displayed correctly as the 3D glasses have not connected to the projector correctly, you should set the 3D Sync Invert option to On using the ► button on your remote control.
