With 3D Tv’s just hitting the market there is currently a lack of content for earlier adopters to enjoy. Nvidia is going to fix that later this spring with the release of 3D TV Play. 3D Tv Play will allow PC owners with compatible Gforce graphics cards to hook their desktop or laptops up to their new big 3D TV set via HDMI.
3DTV Play has been designed so that you use the active-shutter (or passive) glasses supplied with the new 3D TVs, with the synchronization between the TV and the PC happening over the HDMI 1.4 interface. And, because 3DTV Play is based largely on what we do on the 3D Vision software side, this means you will be able to play your entire library of 3D games on the big screen. You’ll also be able to take advantage of our other 3D Vision technology benefits, including watching 3D Blu-ray movies, viewing videos, photographs in 3D, or even browse the Web in 3D or stream 3D content.
3DTV Play will be released later this spring with an anticipated retail price of $39.99 USD. It will also be available for free for current NVIDIA 3D Vision™ customers.
I got a chance to try our Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology recently, by playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 and I was quite blown away. 3DTV Play should really help give 3D Tv sets a shot in the arm with the gaming community by offering us an easy way to use our current machines with the new displays. And to help people see the amazing difference Nvidia and Panasonic are teaming up for a 15 city road tour so you can try out 3DTV Play, go here for details http://www.panasonic.com/promos/touch-the-future-tour/
