NVidia releases new 3D Vision Pro, OptiX2, SceniX 6
By Randall Hand
Huge day for NVidia. First the amazing Quadro Fermi series, and now new 3D Vision Pro and new AXE systems. First, let’s discuss the impressive new 3D Vision Pro.
NVidia brings their 3D Vision Pro to a new class of applications with one simple change: Switching from IR transmitters to RF transmitters. This effectively eliminates line of sight problems, opening the 3D Vision use for crowds of people, multi-screen displays, and VR environments like the CAVE. Also, this allows them to synchronize glasses to specific displays, as they’ve done in their impressive SIGGRAPH Booth. 3D is a big driver today, and they’ve got around a dozen different 3D displays running different demos all around the booth. Each display has about 4 3d glasses synced to it, and they don’t interfere with other displays, nor do the glasses work with other displays. The display can effectively turn the glasses on and off, without messing with other displays. This kind of managed interface is critical for large-scale professional applications.
“By providing large scale visualization capabilities and remote management capabilities, NVIDIA is pioneering 3D technology for the enterprise, opening the door for professional users and large scale visualization system integrators to utilize 3D in ways not thought of before.” Dr. Jon Peddie, president of Jon Peddie Research.
