Hi,

@Philips

I hope you can enlighten us about a technical question. Some of us plan to buy new active 3D glasses. To have a better overview about the differences of the 3D glasses from the last 3 years (and to have a better decision basis), I'd like to know the contrast ratios:


PTA03 (2010 glasses): contrast ratio = ?
PTA516 (2011 glasses): contrast ratio = ?
PTA507 (2012 glasses): contrast ratio = 2000:1
PTA517 (2012 glasses): contrast ratio = 4000:1


Can you please help us to complete the list for the PTA516 and PTA03?

Thanks in advance,

Toengel@Alex

Hi Alex

This is the information I've found for you:


PTA507 (2012 glasses): contrast ratio = 2000:1
PTA517 (2012 glasses): contrast ratio = 4000:1

Have a great weekend

Does a higher contrast ratio mean a better 3D experience? Also: are even the cheaper PTA507 glasses from this year better than the more expensive PTA516 from last year?

Could someone please answer my previous question. I'd like to know if purchasing the new PTA517 would result in a better 3D experience on my Philips Cinema Platinum (58PFL9956H/12) or if it does't matter a bit. Thank you in advance for your replies.

Hi Bluevoice.

Sorry for the delay in answer.

The higher contrast will ensure a clearer, shaper image so it is a factor (but by no means the only factor as the TV’s backlight plays a key part here). Like when watching a 2D image, the higher the contrast, the more shades of black you will see. Would expect the better contrast to be most visible on the higher end sets (esp the 7000+ series).

PTA516 vs PTA517 = pic quality looks the same, just some improvements made to the design. Yes, they are cheaper this year but technology prices come down every year.
PTA516 is discontinued, so very unlikely to find them in the shops.

Hi Benedickte and thanks for your fast reply. Just 2 more questions:

My initial question was about PTA516 vs. PTA507 because PTA507 also seems to have a better contrast than the PTA516. Did you also mean PTA507 in your writing above? Is it that picture on PTA516 looks more or less the same as on a PTA507 or a PTA517? I understand that technology gets cheeper every year :)

I have a Philips Cinema Platinum (58PFL9956H/12) and a couple of PTA516 glasses. I'm planning on buying a new PTA517. Could you tell me if it will make any difference or, as you said above, pic quality looks the same?

Hi,

and one additional question:

Do the PTA507 also support the increased shutter speed of 72/75Hz of the upcoming 9000 series?

Dear bluevoice,

Indeed the PTA517 do have a higher contrast ratio. So the 3D Experience should increase on a technical level.
What I can’t tell you is if you do experience that by yourself. As you know there are a lot of things influencing the experience level for 3D.
Most of them are outside from our Business like the healthiness of your Eyes, Light in the Room etc.
So I can’ tell you if the 3D experience will increase for you.

When it comes to PTA507 is light-set with a different design.



Have a great weekend!

Hi Philips - Benedickte, I see that Philips is preparing the release of the 3D glasses for next year. Could you tell us what the contrast ratio will be for the PTA508 and the PTA518? Thank you in advance for your reply.

I got the 518 on the the post office i'll go take them tomorrow, by the spec it seem that it weight more 0.35 instead of 0.07 compare to 507, but it should be more comfortable and if the 517 has better contrast ratio then 518 should be the same or higher, the question is same or higher. Can someone answer the question ?

60PFL9607

So u can use them, I say if u can get the best one just get it cause it u will be using it a lot or at least on long period of time watching movies or playing games. if u really want little cheaper glasses then 517 should work I guess depends if it the same contrast as 518. but don't get 507 cause it has lower contrast quality and 516 is not in production anymore.

Thanks

Hey, you can use the 518 on my glasses PTA Philips 5500 series Smart LED TV 55PFL5537H 140 cm (55 ") 3D DVB-T / C with Pixel Plus HD, the PTA model 517 has a higher price.

Thank you for your help.

Well by the spec it says that you can. 5000 is 5xx7 series which means all 5000.

If this is your Tv then no problem

If it supports 507, 517 then 518 should work without any problem.

ok I got the glasses, they seem to really have better contrast compare to 507, less yellowish effect which is way better.

They are more comfortable because they have the nose thing i don't remember it's name.

But they seem to worth the money if you gonna play and watch movies A lot.
