Default Re: 60Hz vs. 120Hz vs. 240Hz TVs

Also 120Hz and 240Hz TVs can be used for 3D (if they really are true 120 and 240Hz).

Normally, 600Hz TVs etc. can display 600 frames, but these frames are generated from the 60Hz input signal - using interpolation, they generate additional frames to make the image smoother in panning shots etc. True 120Hz TVs can have 120 different pictures per second as input. This is required for 3D - 60Hz per eye.

You cannot use your 600Hz TV for 3D unless it supports 120Hz input (most do not as far as I know).
