LAS VEGAS — European supplier Volfoni introduced at International CES a pair of 3D glasses that are said to work with both active and passive 3D TVs.

The company is calling its Activeyes line “the world’s first totally universal eyewear, compatible with all active and passive 3DTVs and PC monitors currently available on the market.”

The glasses feature a two-piece solution, composed of passive glasses and a dongle that drives an active-shutter mode. The glasses weigh just more than 1 ounce.

The glasses were demonstrated in the company’s booth, along with two other models optically optimized for 3D TVs or PC monitors.

“We are excited to showcase our innovative Activeyes patent-pending product at this year’s CES,” said Thierry Henkinet, Volfoni president. “Activeyes is truly universal and intelligent eyewear. They are compatible with all 3D TV sets, PC monitors and most movie theaters and you can wear them outside.”

Volfoni introduced its Edge 1.0 active- shutter glasses for the professional market in September. Activeyes is the company’s first consumer product.
