Nvidia Support Plan for 3D Vision Products

April 18th, 2019 · No Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


Unfortunately it seems that Nvidia is retiring their 3D Vision software support after quite a long of time with no serious development on the project… can’t say this is unexpected, just not happy that they abandoned the project.

Following the posting of the final driver from Release 418 in April 2019, GeForce Game Ready Drivers will no longer support NVIDIA 3D Vision. The NVIDIA support team will continue to address critical driver issues for 3D Vision in Release 418 through April, 2020. Those looking to utilize 3D Vision can remain on a Release 418 driver.

Our software that enables the use of 3D gaming with 3D TVs, 3DTV Play, is now included for free in Release 418. It is no longer available as a standalone download. Our 3D Vision Video Player will continue to be offered as a standalone download, for free, until the end of 2019.

The Nvidia 3D Vision Shutter Glasses Get an Update and Price Slash

March 15th, 2011 · 14 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

A bit over 2 years after the initial announcement, the 3D Vision shutter glasses from Nvidia finally get a small update and a price decrease for both the full kit including the 3D IR emitter and for the additional pairs of glasses only. The updated version of the 3D Vision wireless glasses kit should now have a price of $149 (US), $50 less than the original price. And the new glasses should provide 50 percent longer battery life from a single charge, meaning about 60 hours compared with 40 hours before.The new price of the extra wireless glasses is $119, so now is should be easier and more affordable to share the 3D experience with your friends.

There is no official information regarding any other changes in the glasses themselves, besides the use of a bigger capacity battery that can provide you with an up to 20 hours more on a single charge. With the older batteries being 50 mAh, 3.7V we can safely assume that the new glasses will come with a slightly bigger 75 mAh batteries, although that is not yet confirmed. I’ll try to find more information if there are any other improvements in the new version of the glasses as well as how you will be able to differentiate the older from the newer version, so stay tuned for more information about that.

Update: It seems that the new 3D Vision kits will have s smaller package as the photo above also hints, and the European version is also getting the 3-pin mini-DIN VESA Stereo cable in the package as previously it was only available for the North American units. And other than the battery upgrade there are no significant changes in the shutter glasses…
