Silicon Micro Display’s ST1080 3D HMD To Be Available in May

March 20th, 2012 · 4 Comments · 3D / AR / VR / HMD

Silicon Micro Display is finishing with the initial pre-order promotion for their 1080p 3D-capable Head Mounted Display unit, but you still have some time to catch the last train and pre-order the ST1080 for $699 USD. After the pre-orde promotion ending March 21st, the price will be returned to the normal $799 USD, and SMD is also taking international pre-orders from a limited number of countries worldwide. Have in mind that pre-orders for the ST1080 3D HMD are irrevocable and the payment is being processed at time of pre-order. The estimated delivery for the pre-orders according to Silicon Micro Display is May, so if everything goes well very soon the ST1080 will turn out to be an alternative to Sony’s HMZ-T1 720p 3D Visor that is already available in some countries. And just a reminder, the ST1080 uses HDMI 1.4 frame packaging for stereo 3D content and is thus limited to 1080p 24Hz 3D mode (good for 3D movies) and 720p 60Hz 3D mode (good for gaming).

    will it work with 3d vision? And the sony?

    No official announcement, but since it uses HDMI 1.4 specs it should be able to be made compatible with 3DTV Play as is the case with Sony’s HMZ-T1 that should be supported from Nvidia already.

    what is the disadvantage of 3dtv play compared to normal 3d vision?

    There’s a big disavantage:
    3D Vision supports 1080p60hz for 3D gaming while 3DTV Play only supports 1080p24hz and 720p60hz for gaming.
    If you want FULL HD 3D gaming, you don’t want to use 3DTV Play, cause 24hz is not the way to go….
