20120033060SHUTTER GLASSES AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A PAIR OF SHUTTER GLASSES - A method for controlling shutter glasses includes controlling each of a first shutter lens and a second shutter lens to be switched between an on-state and an off-state, wherein the first shutter lens stays in the on-state within an image output period corresponding to a secondary first image, and stays in the off-state with an image output period corresponding to a following primary second image, and the second shutter lens stays in the off-state within the image output period corresponding to the primary second image, and stays in the on-state within an image output period corresponding to a following secondary second image. The first shutter lens and the second shutter lens simultaneously stay in the off-state only within a single continuous time period of the image output period corresponding to the primary second image.02-09-2012
20120038757METHOD FOR PLAYING CORRESPONDING 3D IMAGES ACCORDING TO DIFFERENT VISUAL ANGLES AND RELATED IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM - A 3D image playback method includes utilizing a detecting module to detect a visual angle included between a display device and a shutter glasses, playing a plurality of 3D image sets with different visual angles at a specific frequency by the display device, transmitting a synchronization signal corresponding to the visual angle to the shutter glasses by the detecting module, and controlling a switching frequency of the shutter glasses so as to make the shutter glasses capable of receiving one of the plurality of 3D image sets corresponding to the visual angle.02-16-2012
201200387563D GLASSES, METHOD FOR DRIVING 3D GLASSES, AND SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING 3D IMAGE - Three-dimensional (3D) glasses, a method for driving 3D glasses, and a system for providing a 3D image are provided. The 3D glasses driving method includes detecting a first pattern corresponding to a left eye image and a second pattern corresponding to a right eye image from a 3D display apparatus, converting the first pattern into a first histogram and the second pattern into a second histogram, comparing the converted first and second histograms with first and second optimal histograms, and adjusting an opening or a closing of a left eye glasses part and a right eye glasses part of the 3D glasses based on the comparison.02-16-2012
