As with all single projector 3D systems, active 3D glasses are required.
“The 3D-XL is an important product for the market right now,” said Jon Grodem,senior director of product and marketing for Optoma. “It gives a large installed base a way to embrace 3D life without having to make a new, expensive investment.”

The 3D-XL supports multiple 3D inputs, with two HDMI 1.4A inputs, 1 USB port and 1 RS232 port, and can accept common global video inputs and video formats up to 1080p (HDTV, EDTV, SDTV, NTSC, PAL, SECAM).
