– Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the number one worldwide brand of LCD monitors, together with NVIDIA, world leader in visual computing technologies, announced today the launch of 3D Stereoscopic technology in the Middle East. The bundled 3D kit comprising of a Samsung 2233RZ monitor, NVIDIA high-tech wireless glasses, a high-power IR emitter and advanced software, combine to form the foundation for a new consumer 3D stereo ecosystem for gaming and home entertainment PCs.
“We are pleased to be partnering with NVIDIA to offer consumers in the Middle East the first 3D vision package,” said Madhav Narayan, Head of IT Division, Samsung Gulf Electronics. ”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.”
Mr. Serge Lemonde, Director of Marketing, NVIDIA- EMEA and India commented, “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, and for developers, it unlocks the potential of making the game literally pop off the screen. It brings a whole new dimension to photos, movies and games, transforming them into a mind-blowing stereoscopic 3D experience which is truly immersive”.
The Samsung 2233RZ monitor boasts the refined, streamlined and unique design, in addition to its top-class performance, that consumers have come to expect from Samsung products. The display is housed in a thin, glossy black bezel that is a stylish accent to any environment. It provides a compelling 3D experience with incredible picture quality, and users can now set up a shortcut key to easily shuttle between 2D and 3D.
With the environment in mind, Samsung built in an off timer function for energy-saving benefits, enabling the monitor to shutdown at set times. Unlike many other widescreen monitors, the Samsung 2233RZ displays 5:4 and 4:3 images at accurate aspect ratios without enlargement or distortion.
The 2233RZ, in conjunction with NVIDIA’s advanced software, automatically converts over 350 games to stereoscopic 3D without the need for special game patches. High-tech active shutter glasses from NVIDIA, designed with top-of-the-line optics, deliver double the resolution per eye and ultra-wide viewing angles than passive glasses. In addition, the new pure 120Hz LCD monitors unlock crystal-clear, flicker-free stereoscopic 3D gaming that provides 60Hz per eye.
The 3D glasses are designed so that users can simultaneously wear prescription glasses comfortably. This ensures that users with corrective eyewear can view fully-immersive stereoscopic 3D. The glasses are easily powered over a standard USB cable and can last an entire week without a recharge, which helps to minimize battery replacement. In addition, NVIDIA’s “The Way It’s Meant to Be Played” program ensures that future games will support 3D Vision.
