Since 3D technology can be either Active or Passive, your television can have either depending on the brand of your choice. Until 2102, the distinction was very clear-cut and Panasonic, Samsung and Sony used Active 3D, while LG and Vizio made passive 3D TVs. Currently however, Panasonic and Sony too have come out with Passive 3D with polarized 3D glasses, and LG have begun making Active 3D plasma TVs with active shutter glasses.
