What is a 3D Compatible Projector?
Using the inherent speed of DLP technology, select Optoma projectors can output video and images at an astonishing rate of 120Hz, allowing you to show full screen, full color, stereoscopic 3D. The 3D effect is generated by splitting this signal into two standard video streams, one for each eye. 3D glasses synchronize with the image on screen to filter each stream to the correct eye. Your brain then combines the two streams to make them jump to life. Optoma 3D enabled projectors can only display 3D images when 3D content is delivered to the projector from a PC with software able to generate a 3D image and a graphics card that supports 3D display. Typical applications include 3D computer games, 3D educational software and 3D design and modeling software.
What Hardware and Software is Required to Project a 3D Image?
- An Optoma 3D capable projector
- 3D source from Blu-ray DVD player, PC or gaming console
- Content created in 3D including video games, movies, educational programs and CAD programs
- DLP® Link™ or similar active lens 3D glasses
Currently, Optoma 3D projectors cannot be used to view 3D content from TV broadcast systems or Blu-ray players. Optoma projectors may support these applications in the future but will require additional hardware at an extra cost. After broadcast, Blu-ray and 1080p standards are finalized projectors may be developed to incorporate technology to display 3D video programs without additional hardware. A 3D Blue ray player (1080p) is sending over a large amount of information to the monitor or projector and a new standard HDMI 1.4a connector is required. The projectors do not have an HDMI 1.4a input nor the bandwidth to receive this type of signal. There are several broadcast standards on the horizon and we have not received information about these standards as they are still being finalized so in the interim the only way to process the variety of signals being developed is to develop or purchase a multi-standard box that translates the various signals to work with the projectors. As usual, there are many companies that want to develop their own way of sending the information. The reason that you see bundles being offered now is that Samsung and other companies want to supply customers with at least one working source with their 3D display.
What's in the Box: - 3D glasses, USB charging cable, soft pouch, microfiber cleaning cloth, and nose piece.
