Asus VG278H 3D Monitor and New 3D Vision Glasses Coming Soon

September 5th, 2011 · 14 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Asus has been a bit slow with releasing this monitor, and although it was among the first few announced 27-inch 3D-capable displays it is still not available on the market, but that seems to be about to change. It has been added the in the latest Asus product catalog (thanks to Andrea deluxe who shared scans in the forum) with specifications and some extra bit of information and there are even hints for September release as well as for new 3D Vision glasses that are apparently going to be bundled with the monitor. Asus VG278H will feature Dual-Link DVI interface supporting 3D Vision as well as HDMI 1.4 interface supporting stereo 3D for devices such as Blu-ray 3D players or the PlayStaton 3 console. The monitor will have the IR transmitter for 3D Vision embedded as well as a pair of 3D Vision glasses that will work with 3D Vision and also with 3D input over the HDMI 1.4 interface.

On the above page from the catalog Asus mentions some interesting information about the glasses you will be getting with the monitor, apparently featuring Nvidia LightBoost technology that is supposed to provide two times the brightness of the original 3D Vision active shutter glasses. So this clearly means we are going to be getting new 3D Vision glasses supposed to be announced this month, although up to this point this still hasn’t happened. And since Nvidia had the original 3D Vision active shutter glasses for about 3 years already it was about time for a refresh offering better light transmittance through the lenses, but 100% increase in brightness level perceived by the user through the glasses in stereo 3D mode is something worth waiting for. Of course these new glasses will most likely also appear as a separate product and not only as a bundle with the Asus VG278H 3D monitor, so we should stay tuned for more information and the official announcement from Nvidia.
