Zalman is Refreshing its 3D-capable Monitors with New Full HD Models

May 20th, 2010 · 9 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Zalman is now offering two new Full HD 3D passive polarized monitors in its like of Trimon products. The older 19-inch model ZM-M190 is now discontinued and the bigger one ZM-M220W will probably follow soon. These first two models were using a special version of Nvidia’s stereoscopic drivers, but for its two new models Zalman is not going to use the Nvidia drivers anymore. Instead the new Zalman ZM-M215W and ZM-M240W will come bundled with the iZ3D Driver, but they can also work with DDD’s TriDef software and probably with just about any other software that can output in row-interleaved 3D format. Below you can find the specifications for the two new passive polarized displays from Zalman, and they are passive polarized ones and not using 120Hz LCD panels, as I’ve already seen some people mistakenly claiming they are 120Hz ones.

MTBS-TV Episode: Stereoscopic 3D Gaming History, Part III

February 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Other S3D Tech


Neil Schneider from MTBS started telling the histtory of the stereoscopic 3D gaming in the form of a YouTube 3D video, then in the second part of that video he continued with more recent development around S3D gaming. This time, in the third part, Neil is talking about what happened in the last two years – things like Zalman Trimon 3D monitors being launched with Nvidia stereoscopic 3D drivers, updated only to work with this monitor. iZ3D and DDD extending their driver support for additional hardware, but they still did not offer shutter glasses support. Then Nvidia demonstrating their new 3D Vision shutter glasses along with a 120Hz LCD monitors and new 3D drivers. And at the end he also mentions that other companies are already working on alternatives like for example Bit Cauldron’s upcoming shutter glasses.

3Dfier is Now Available for Anaglyph and Passive Polarized Displays

February 10th, 2010 · 5 Comments · 2D to 3D Conversion

3dfier-stereoscopic-player


The guys from RadiantStar – the company that is making the 3Dfier DirectShow filter for realtime 2D to 3D video conversion have just released two new versions of the filter to compliment the already available one that was designed for 3D Vision owners. One is for Passive Polarized Displays like the ones found on Zalman Trimon 3D monitors and Acer Aspire 3D notebooks and the other one is for Anaglyph red-cyan glasses. These two are currently available only as demo versions for personal testing and still are not being sold like the 3D Vision version. Also for these two you don’t need to use a stereoscopic player, you can just use them with a normal video player that can load the required DirectShow filters like Media Player Classic for example. And with the Anaglyph red-cyan glasses demo version there is no time limitation on how long it will play so you can watch whole movies with it.
