Samsung 3D TV for gamers

Samsung have announced their first 3D monitor – the Samsung 2233RZ which gamers will be pleased to note is compatible with Nvidia’s new GeForce 3D Vision graphics card.
The set is tipped to ship in teh US in April with a sale price of $399.

“More users are enjoying higher performance games and movies using high-performance graphic boards,” said R.A Atanus, Vice President of Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics’ Information Technology Division. “As entertainment content becomes more available, the need for hardware technology to maintain increasing volumes of software content becomes more important. Combining this new 3D technology with Samsung’s LCD monitor creates an optimal viewing tool – for uses ranging from teaching and using 3D modelling to playing the latest video games.”

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, 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 eye wear can view fully-immersive stereoscopic 3D. In addition, adjustable nose pieces are included to ensure a custom fit for each user. The 3D glasses are easily powered over a standard USB cable and can last an entire week without a recharge, which helps to minimise battery replacement. The monitor’s intelligent circuit design enables automatic shut-down after 10 minutes when not in use in order to preserve battery life.
