Nvidia software automatically converts standard PC games to stereoscopic 3D, claims company
Chip maker Nvidia has released ‘3D Vision Wired Glasses’, an updated and wired version of its shutter glasses.
The California-based company said with the new wired glasses, users can view 3D content in a traditional PC environment.
Users can play over 500 games in stereoscopic 3D on their PCs as the Nvidia software automatically converts standard PC games to stereoscopic 3D. The glasses can also be used for any 3D-Vision Ready displays including desktop LCD monitors, notebooks, all-in-one PCs, projectors, and DLP HDTVs, said the company.
Among other features of the new glasses are: full HD resolution per eye and ultra-wide viewing angles; support for pure Full HD 120 Hz LCD monitors; maximum 3D display flexibility; optimisation for LAN parties and iCafe gaming centres; and USB wired connection which means no batteries to recharge or replace.
Weighing 50 grams, the glasses come with built-in support for standard PC/notebook security lock kits to prevent theft. They have also been customised for people who use corrective spectacles so that the glasses fit well over the spectacles, said Nvidia.
3D Vision wired glasses are powered by Nvidia GeForce GPUs. The glasses also include a free copy of 3DTV Play software, which allows users to connect to an HDMI 1.4 3D TV.
Nvidia was founded in 1993, by Jen-Hsun Huang. The company went public in 1999 and is listed on NASDAQ. It has around 5,700 employees in over 20 countries.
