The 22" iZ3D widescreen monitor offers immersive 3D images with the use of passive polarized glasses. Designed to replace standard two-dimensional monitors, iZ3D maintains commercial image quality and display brightness, while supporting long-time viewing without fatigue or eyestrain. This advanced technology uses existing three-dimensional applications such as PC games and other 3D entertainment. Plus, with the push of a hotkey it becomes a standard two-dimensional ("2D") monitor for the Web or word processing.
The iZ3D 22" monitor offers the first S-3D drivers to be compatible with popular dual output cards, including the NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series and the ATI FireGL™ V3600 workstation graphics accelerator. These drivers are optimized to take advantage of Intel’s® latest Core™ 2 Duo and Intel® Core™ 2 Quad processor technologies. iZ3D also features drivers that support Microsoft® DirectX® 8 and 9 graphics in both Windows® XP and Microsoft® Windows Vista™.
Currently equipped PC’s with a dual-output video card easily power the unit. Specifications include: 1680 x 1050 resolution; up to 170-degree 3D viewing angle; 5ms response time; 700:1 contrast ratio; and 16.7-million colors.
