New Information About Sony’s PlayStation 3D Display (CECH-ZED1)

August 30th, 2011 · 13 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Sony has made available some additional information about their upcoming 24-inch PlayStation 3D monitor (CECH-ZED1), apparently it will not come in December as the pre-order page at Amazon has suggested, but will instead be available sometime in November. Aside from that Sony has announced that everyone who pre-orders the 3D display until September 30th will not only get the game MotorStorm Apocalypse that is bundled by default, but will also get a copy of the game Resistance 3. Aside from that, Sony has also published the above video of the PlayStation 3D monitor in action with some of it features explained and demonstrated, which apart from stereoscopic 3D support over HDMI 1.4 interface also supports the SimulView technology allowing two persons to play a game in multiplayer mode and see different images (in 2D).

    besides simulview , wouldn’t a 3d vision ready pc monitor with hdmi 1.4 blow this screen away?

    i guess the sound will be good but my video cards don’t support 1.4 so no use to me

    Well, it depends. Sony’s PlayStation 3D monitor should be based on an VA-type of panel and not on an TN one like all 3DVision monitors are currently, so that means better color quality and wider viewing angles for the PS 3D monitor (hopefully less crosstalk/ghosting as well). On the other hand the HDMI 1.4 limits the monitor in terms or resolution and refresh rates supported in 3D mode, so no 1080p 3D mode with up to 60 Hz per eye in 3D and no option to play in 1080p with 120Hz in non S3D mode like you can on a 3D Vision-ready 3D monitor.

    Indeed it’s not going to be good for me as I would rather just purchase the Acer 27″ for about the same price here in the UK. Saying that, the simulview is a great feature, you can just imagine where that feature will go in 5 years time. I may soon be able to watch my programs while the better half watches her crappy soap opera’s all on the same couch… we can even hug each other while we do it :D

    Gone will be the days where I am forced to watch utter tat on the telly, I hope Sony realize this features potential and start to implement it on there bigger TV’s…. or even add this feature to their existing ones unless it requires a different type of transmitter.

    The only thing youd need for simulview is for the glasses to support it. A simple only show left / right frame switch on the side of them. For passive youd need 2 pairs of glasses though.

    Tried all several top bottom split screen games on my LG passive and the (Dual Play) it worked just fine. All Cinema 3DTVs have Dual Play. All passive TVs work as well. The image is minimally stretched but not “distorted”. All new flat panel HD 3D TVs are wide screen so top bottom split screen works fine. You not looking for perfection just a means of kicking some local play butt without any cheating.

    Amazing technology. Cant wait to see one in person. But i think im gonna wait untill they release one thats at least 42inches. 27 is so tiny compared to my 62inch i currently have.

    So I’ve got this idea, and let me know if I’m totally crazy. I want to buy/make a piece of gear that will take two hd video inputs (preferably hdmi) and place them into a SBS 3D format so that I can do this “simulview” with two seperate video inputs.

    For example, two people playing completely different games, or game and a movie… You get the idea I think. Both of which are in 2D, but issuing the 3D SBS mode. I understand the audio will need to be isolated between the users as not to “interfere” or bother the other person.

    Is the SBS format only done through software?
    Is there a piece of gear that already does this?
    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Well, it should be doable, but would require some serious resources to have it done in real time and without a lot of lag for two 1080p streams. You can use a powerful PC with two HDMI capture cards such as the Intensity Pro from Blackmagic – http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/intensity/models/
