NVIDIA 3D Vision Active Shutter Glasses
Experiencing 3D on your PC starts with a processor inside your PC called the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). NVIDIA® GPUs are called GeForce® GPUs.The primary function of the GPU is to render and display images on your PC monitor. In the case of 3D PCs, a GeForce GPU is specially programed to render and display two images, one for your left eye and one for your right eye. The monitor and 3D glasses work with the GeForce GPU, so each eye receives its own image. Because each of your eyes receives a separate image, your brain perceives 3D.
|Active Shutter Glasses Technology|
NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ PCs work with cutting-edge LCDs and panels that feature true 120Hz LCD technology to deliver a full-resolution 3D experience with active shutter glasses technology. With this method, the left and the right eye images are presented on alternating frames, but since these screens are capable of 120Hz, each eye still sees a full 60Hz signal that is equivalent to the refresh rate on LCD monitors today. 3D Vision PCs support laptop displays and desktop LCD monitors with resolutions of 1680x1050 and 1920x1080. This offers a number of advantages including:
|Automatic Detection and Dynamic 3D Adjustment|
Once you get 3D Vision compatible hardware and content, experiencing 3D is quick and easy. When you launch a certified game, it will automatically run in 3D. Since the 3D effect is driven by the GeForce GPU, you can increase/decrease the 3D depth or toggle it on/off in real time.
|A Complete Ecosystem of Certified Hardware and Content|
There is a huge ecosystem of products that directly supports NVIDIA 3D Vision. To help simplify this for consumers, NVIDIA developed the 3D Vision-Ready program that identifies components and content as being ready or purposely built for the 3D Vision PC. Only certified products carry the NVIDIA 3D Vision-ready badge.
