NVIDIA releases next-gen 3D glasses and monitors

New versions of 3D Vision products are out

The NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses have been introduced with a new and brighter 3D LightBoost monitor technology to provide gamers with more realistic 3D games, movies and photos

The new glasses features sleek, newly-redesigned, gamer-inspired glasses. The LightBoost technology is new display tech that improves the 3D experience by producing images that are up to twice as bright and rich colours.

"Gorgeous, bright, crystal-clear 3D worlds are created by NVIDIA’s 3D Vision 2 glasses with 3D LightBoost monitors and notebooks," said Phil Eisler, general manager of 3D Vision at NVIDIA. "NVIDIA’s engineering team has made incredible enhancements in 3D on PCs, creating a breathtaking gaming experience that’s better than the best Hollywood 3D movie."

The glasses are designed specifically for gamers and 3D enthusiasts. They lenses are 20% larger than those in first-generation glasses, resulting in a wider viewing area and increased external light blocking. In addition, it is made of soft composite materials for a more comfortable fit with gaming headphones.

The glasses feature NVIDIA’s advanced active-shutter and IR wireless technologies, allowing users to access high-quality 3D content, including more than 550 full-HD 1080p 3D games, more than 100 Blu-ray 3D movies and thousands of 3D videos and photos from YouTube and 3DVisionLive.com.

LightBoost is a new NVIDIA display technology that delivers up to two times brighter 3D images than existing 3D solutions and improved colour quality. It also increases environmental lighting, making gaming keyboards and mice more visible, and reducing 3D ghosting.

"NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology makes 3D games, movies and photos more stunning and life-like than ever before," said David Wung, senior director of product management of Open Platform Business (OPBG) Group for ASUS Computer International.

"With 3D LightBoost and our new full-HD monitors, colours are richer, textures and subtle image details virtually jump off the screen, and the overall quality of the experience is something to behold."

The first NVIDIA 3D LightBoost-certified desktop display is the ASUS VG278H, a 27-inch LED full HD (1920x1080) monitor, featuring a 3D HDMI 1.4 input, as well as a Dual-link DVI input for full HD 1080p 3D gaming.
