3D ready displays might become a common household gadget by the end of this year
Asus continued this year's CES 2010 trend of showing off 3D-ready displays by unveiling its 3D Monitors displays at the ongoing CeBIT 2010 convention at Hanover, Germany. Three new monitor models showed by Asus include 23-inch MG236, 23.6-inch PG246 and 27-inch PG276 monitor models. No detailed specifications, price and availability was announced by Asus but we may expect them in the by the end of this year.
New full-HD widescreen Asus monitors capable of displaying 3D imagery are being planned for the home and office segment. With the help of the Nvidia 3D Vision Kit, consumers can play 3D stereoscopic games and watch 3D movies on Asus monitors. Nvidia 3D vision comprises of special 3D glasses (much better than the ones you get in movie halls), 3D supporting graphics card and a LCD with 120 Hz refresh rate. To watch 3D movies, one will need 3D Blu-ray movies and Nvidia's Stereoscopic 3D movies player software that can be downloaded for free. Likewise, the games that support Nvidia 3D vision can be played using the 3D vision kit.
This means that the upcoming Asus 3D Full HD monitors would be supporting 120Hz refresh rates. The first 3D full HD Asus Display to come out would be 23-inch MG236.
All full 1080p HD resolution Asus monitors with 3D support will have dual-link DVI port for connectivity. The Asus MG236 will be capable to display resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. Two more models - 23.6 inch PG246 and 27-inch PG276 will follow in the 3D Full HD monitor lineup. These monitors are perfect for the living room entertainment. Unfortunately, one would require some HDMI to DVI display connectors to hook consoles with these monitors.
Looks like 3D ready Full HD displays would make their way to our living rooms by the end of this year.
