As far as I know the Glasstron is discontinued though stock items may be available. For an alternative, have a look at these: http://www.i-glasses...s-video-hr.html and http://www.i-glasses.../ig-hrvpro.html.

I use VR glasses when I use my jib. They let me move much higher and lower with out the inconvenience of a glaring monitor. I also use them when I am hand holding at foot level. They work great. The pair I bought was a cheap computer gaming system about $150. They don't make em anymore and I hate to imagine what it will cost to replace them.
