Samsung and NVIDIA have announced the launch of their 3D stereoscopic technology in the Middle East
Samsung and NVIDIA have announced the launch of their 3D stereoscopic technology in the Middle East. The bundled 3D kit comprises a Samsung 2233RZ 120Hz LCD monitor and NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision Kit, which includes 3D glasses, IR emitter and software geared at gaming and home entertainment PCs.
Samsung’s 2233RZ, in conjunction with NVIDIA GeForce GPUs and NVIDIA software, converts over 350 games to stereoscopic 3D. The kit also converts some movies to 3D while it has software that can render photos in 3D as well.
The 120Hz LCD monitor unlocks stereoscopic 3D gaming that provides 60Hz per eye whilst NVIDIA’s shutter glasses, in turn, deliver double the resolution per eye and wide viewing angles.
Mr. Serge Lemonde, Director of Marketing NVIDIA- EMEA and India, says, “3D Vision will form the foundation for a new consumer 3D stereo ecosystem for gaming and home entertainment. For gamers, 3D Vision for GeForce represents a whole different way of experiencing the game….It brings a whole new dimension to photos, movies and games, transforming them into a mind-blowing stereoscopic 3D experience which is truly immersive”.
Madhav Narayan, Head of IT Division, Samsung Gulf Electronics says, “As entertainment content becomes more readily available, the need for hardware technology to support increasing volumes of software content becomes more important. Combining NVIDIA’s 3D technology with Samsung’s LCD monitor creates an optimal viewing tool – for uses ranging from teaching and using 3D modeling to playing the latest video games and watching movies.”
nVidia has took a Strategic move by Bundling their 3D Device with LCDs, which would Lure Customers into Buying and having a First hand Experience to the 3D World apart from Enjoying the Vivid Colors of Samsung LCD...!! Congrats to both the firms! :)
I went to Dubai Mall last week, Aug 7th, to the Samsung dedicated showroom there (is it the flagship showroom?). The staff had no idea what the Nvidia 3D kit was nor did they have any idea on availabilty of the Samsung model. This solution was not on display either. So where can one see this display? Regards
