    • Linear polarization is highly recommended for the applications where there is limited head tilting. Although providing an excellent separation between left and right eye information, the linear polarization is sensitive to the extensive head tilting when the resulting orientation of the passive polarization glasses does not match the orientation of the polarization filters mounted in front of the projectors. If there is a requirement for extensive head tilting and change of the viewing angle, then the circular polarization is recommended. To maintain good separation between left and right eye images, there is a need for tighter match between the circular polarizers in front of the projectors with the circular eyewear.
    Due to constant research, specifications and features are subject to change without notice.
