The term 3D Ready indicates that the television requires the purchase of optional 3D glasses and a 3D transmitter in order to view content in 3D. A 3D integrated TV comes with the glasses and the 3D transmitter is built-in to the TV.


  • The easiest way to determine if the TV is 3D ready, look at the back of TV and see if there is 3D SYNC connection on the back or side of the TV.
  • 3D glasses and 3D transmitters manufactured and designed for use with Sony® 3D televisions are available as optional accessories from the Sony Store website.

    Please contact a local or online authorized retailer to purchase a Sony product.
