I have recently stumbled upon a few different solutions claiming to convert *any* old 2D LCD/Plasma/DLP HDTV or projector into a 3D display. At first this seems like nonsense. I mean, with everything that has been said about timing issues on LCD panels, flicker with 60Hz displays, etc. it would seem like this is not possible. But there are multiple companies claiming it works (there's even a video demonstration below). So if this is for real, have we all been hoodwinked? Have all the HDTVs and computer monitors we own been 3D capable this whole time? If that's true then it would seem like quite a conspiracy. Whats the deal here?
No, it is actually not that obvious. I have tried shutter glasses on 60Hz LCDs and they didn't work, as have numerous members on this board. People said that the timings on standard LCD panels were not precise enough to sync with shutter glasses or something to that effect. Surely there was a reason everyone thought that shutter glasses wouldn't work on 60Hz LCD displays.

If thas was true, don't you think the information wouldn't come from major manufacturers instead of small obscure companies ? The VIP 3D Displayer is a variation over the VIP 3D Gamer, ie. a box that transforms HDMI 1.4 signal to field sequential. They advertise televisions and projectors as supported, and although it'll work on DLP projectors even if they aren't 120Hz as we already know, the results on LCD TVs will be a lot more less convincing.

Newer lcd's have generally quicker responcetime than old ones but saying they work decent with 3d and shutters is a lie at this state. They works well with anaglyph though but that's not really a "counted" option...
I know, right! You could buy a top of the line Sony Bravia 60" 3DTV for that price. And without even seeing their solution I guarantee that Sony set will blow them away. You'd be a fool to pay that much.
