3D your way. You only see movies in 3D. You prefer your games to jump out at you. You have a brand new, state-of-the-art 3DTV. Now you can take the media you already enjoy, the way you like it best - lifelike, immersive, eye-popping and interactive- and enjoy it in your home or everywhere you go.
3D To Go 3D on your screen*. Sweet graphics. Killer sound. Truly your own personal 3D theater. Dell offers the highest quality 3D experience you can get with an optional full high definition (1080p) resolution 3D plus active shutter technology. Not always in 3D? No problem. The full high-definition panel provides an amazing 2D experience in 1080p.
With full resolution, there is no need to scale down resolution or remove information to fit the panels. And at 120 FPS (60FPS right and left), a full resolution image (1920 x 1080 pixels each) is displayed at full frame rate in each eye. And active shutter technology gives you a wider viewing angle, meaning you don’t need to be in a “sweet spot” to see the content in 3D. Compared to passive poloarized technology, active shutter also has better image quality because of higher resolution and reduction in ghosting or doubled images.
The XPS 17 comes standard with NVIDIA 3D Vision, which offers unique opportunities to stream 3D content like PGA Championship, NASCAR, the Masters Tournament and other live sporting events. Only available through www.3DVisionLive.com. Play over 500 games in stunning 3D.
