Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

IMPORTANT: Not all Blu-ray® Disc players, Home Theater systems and TVs have 3D capabilities. Refer to the supplied operations manual for model-specification. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

The following recommendations are provided for optimum viewing:

  • Sit directly in front of the television screen at a distance of about three times the height of the television screen.
  • Face the television screen so that the 3D glasses are as close to level with the screen as possible. Viewing the television screen while tilting your head may result in a double image.

The following is a diagram that displays the viewing range of both a Sony® TV with a built-in 3D transmitter and a 3D-Ready with an optional transmitter.
