NextGen Debuts Rechargeable Universal 3D Glasses
Almost overnight, the electronics company NextGen has been able to build a reliable business that provides consumers with IR remote control extenders, third-party tested HDMI cables, and HDMI splitters that are built at professional quality level for reasonable money.
The Port Richey, Florida-based manufacturer has just entered a new product category: active 3D glasses. Unlike many of the active glasses that reside on the market, NextGen has combined a rechargeable battery with glasses that work with most major 3D TV brands.
NextGen president Bob Dolatowski says the universal glasses provide the public with a simple solution that saves consumers from having to replace batteries. “These new active 3D glasses are the highest quality and they work with all the major 3D TV brands,” he says. “What really sets them apart is the convenience of being able to recharge them with a standard USB cable, and a three-hour charge that lasts about 50 hours, which will get you through quite a few movies before they need to be recharged.”
According to the company, the glasses work with 3D TVs from LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and Toshiba, providing up to 50 hours of 3D viewing on a single charge. Each pair retails for $79.95 (MSRP), which also includes a lens cleaner, a case and a USB cable.
