Hi! FPR is not a tv, its a 3d tv technology launched by LG in India on 26th april. LG is using the FPR tech in their 3d tv world wide & know in India as well. LG claims that FPR has more comfortable 3d glasses than the former 3d tech.

Hi Utkarsh, LG WRman Sherlock here!

As someone has already pointed out, FPR is not a separate type of TV, but a technology that is used to create 3D pictures. FPR stands for Film-patterned Retarder, and works as a screen that is attached to the usual LCD display screen. It uses light polarization to create left and right eye perspective images, which are then viewed through 3D glasses. The TVs that use the FPR based screens are called passive 3D TVs. The passive 3D glasses are very light, cheap and battery free. FPR based passive 3D TVs are well recognized as being able to give a better and more comfortable 3D watching experience.

Of course, LG 3D TVs are pioneers in passive 3D TVs, with other leading brands that use the technology being Sony, Toshiba, Vizio, Hisense etc.

LG WRman Sherlock, out!

The new technology is dubbed FPR for Film Patterned Retarder, which is said to be vastly superior to previous 3D liquid crystal display (LCD) systems. The current system uses a frame sequential method and the display is viewed using liquid crystal shutter glasses (SG). The new technology uses a polarized film substrate in the panel and is viewed using polarized film glasses. Using film instead of glass as a substrate for the patterned retarder panel also cuts the costs of the system considerably.

The new technology reduces the vertical resolution to half that of a panel and produces a near-4K resolution full high definition 3D picture that is extremely sharp and bright. The system was demonstrated at the press conference on an 84-inch display.

The polarized film glasses eliminate the flicker and crosstalk problems associated with shutter glasses. The glasses do not require power from batteries or USB charge, and are also lighter and more comfortable than SG and emit no electromag ...more
