No, 120Hz 3D TVs that use that method are
displaying 120Hz of video, it's just alternating back and forth between frames for your left and right eye. You still have to be intputting a 120Hz source, since each eye get its own completely independent stream of 60Hz video.
Plasmas are different about refresh rates though. Typically a "60Hz" plasma actually runs at 600Hz due to each pixel having to flicker 10 times each frame to achieve a good brightness. Do plasmas that support 120Hz actually operate at 1200Hz, or are they still 600Hz and simply cut the number of pixel flickers each frame in half (also cutting brightness)?
