This is an interview with Wing Chung, Director of the Product Engineering Division for Optoma. Optoma was very happy to hear about our excitement for stereoscopic 3D gaming, and made this interview possible.
Don't want to spoil the surprise, but are you equally impressed by the price tag?
I have the Optoma Pro350W and it does full page flip at 720p at 120hz. It was kind of hard to understand the guest speaker but I did hear the word "Nvidia" several times so I am very encouraged by this and hope we will see "formal" driver support sooner than March. For those interested, it does work when detected as a "CRT" in Nvidia setup. One correction though. DLP Link doesn't work by using any type of emitter or dongle and the projector doesn't have a connector to plug the emitter into. The video stream is actually encoded somehow and an optical sensor on the glasses senses this optical encoding and tells the LCD Glasses to shutter at the correct frequency. This allows the projector to control eye swap which is a selection in the Optoma menu. Very cool actually and maybe this type of "marking" would allow emitter free viewing on more than just projectors. What i haven't been able to find out yet is:
1. Does the projector automatically encode the content when it senses 120hz input? 2. Does DLP Link require 3D Driver support from Nvidia and others to operate? 3. Will AMD be able to support this as well? 4. Will DDD and IZ3D be able to support this?
Always more questions! Thanks Neil for the constant flow of interviews. You did a great job at CES this year!
I have heard you HAVE to wear the nVidia Vision glasses upside-down for games pn the HD66. Which to me is like your Meal Deal you pay for doesn't come with frys and a drink. Terrible analogy...but hey its still early.
If I am in the market for a 720p or 1080p 3D projector and haven't bought one yet, I'll want one that supports the new 3D (HDMI 1.4, "3D over HDMI", etc.) standard, in addition to stereoscopic 3D gaming.
