There are two different technologies for 3D TVs: the first is called film-type patterned retarder (FPR), and is used by LG Corp, the other is active shutter-glass (SG), which is supported by Samsung Electronics Co.

The two technologies and companies are in competition to dominate the market.

Last year, SG technology was more popular, but according to the latest research announced by AVC, displays using FPR technology accounted for 58.6 percent of all 3D TV sales in August.

Samsung and LG have been aggressively promoting their 3D technologies, but the battle currently seems to be going in LG's favor. About 70 percent of Chinese 3D TV makers have adopted FPR technology.

"LG expects to hold more than 70 percent of China's 3D TV market by the end of October," said Kwon Young-soo, president and chief executive officer of LG Display Co Ltd, in Beijing in early September.

In order to cater for the Chinese market, the companies are cutting their prices. However, LG has not only ...more

FPR technology is responsible for making the viewing experience better. It prevents double-images and also provides for a flicker-free 3d experience! From the last I heard, LG tv's are known to have FPR technology

FPR is the latest technological breakthrough. FPR is a successor to the SG technology which is used in 3d tv's till now. it is better because it prevents any flickering of images and you get to see clear images

FPR (Film-type Patterned Retarder) is the LED/LCD panel technology, which is used in 3D TV. It shows left and right images through different pattern in a circular polarizer[1]. And left/right polarized glasses allow only left/right images to be seen respectively. Both images are combined in the brain and generate the 3D effect. The FPR technology uses the precise film which can distinguish the left and right images to show a different image for each eye. FPR 3D tech is able to deliver a brighter screen with less cross talk, less ghosting and no flickering. It allows 3D glasses to be light, sleek, battery free and more curved like regular glasses.
FPR (Film-type Patterned Retarder) improves on the cost of Patterned Retarder (PR) technology that needed to add an extra polarizing glasses substrate to the LCD TV panel. FPR has reached the point where it can use film instead of glass, reducing the extra cost to a fourth of what it used to be, while the polarized glasses are five times chea ...more
