San Diego, CA, United States, 2008/06/11 - Features 64 Bit compatibility, CrossFireX and Open GL Quad Buffer Support, “Test Drive”3D Effects on a 2D Monitor.
iZ3D, LLC, is a designer, developer, and marketer of advanced 3D visualization systems. The company is pleased to announce that it has created a new driver version that solves many 3D compatibility issues for the 3D community overall as well as for the iZ3D monitor. The new drivers feature 64 Bit compatibility, CrossFireX and Open GL Quad Buffer support. Users can also “Test Drive” 3D effects on a 2D monitor with red and cyan anaglyph glasses. The new 3D driver is available now for download at the iZ3D.com website.
“We have been at the forefront of the new trend towards 3D for gaming, movies and creative design efforts and have worked hard to overcome many hardware and software challenges. As 3D becomes more popular, more manufacturers are now taking stereoscopic 3D seriously and are beginning to see it as a sales advantage,” remarked Thomas Striegler, CEO of iZ3D, LLC. “Being an industry leader, we believed it was important to provide this new driver to the entire 3D community to further the adoption of 3D.
64-Bit and 32-Bit System Compatibility
The new iZ3D driver allows your computer to play either 64-bit games on a 64-bit system or 32 bit games on a 64 Bit system. This breakthrough will make systems using Microsoft Vista® much more game friendly.
Open GL Quad Buffer Support
This feature supports the many programs that are capable of running in Q Buffer mode. This includes support for the molecular visualization system PyMOL and for the popular game Quake 3™.
Anaglyph and Dual Projector Features for the 3D Community
iZ3D is a strong supporter of the entire 3D Community. Through the new anaglyph and dual projector features many 3D users will benefit from this driver. By using the traditional Red and Cyan “3D” anaglyph glasses users can now take a “test drive” of the 3D experience by using a 2D monitor. Dual projector support such as for TDVision’s TDVisor HMD solution allows other 3D manufacturers to offer a more comprehensive 3D solution with this driver.
ATI CrossFireX™ support for Powerful PCs
Now the iZ3D monitor and other 3D solutions will work with most popular video cards such as ATI and NVidia. This technology can take two GPU’s and use their combined power to render a game faster than a single GPU. This is especially true for boards such as the Radeon HD 3870 X2.
New Friendly User Interface
Now users can store player profiles and hot key groups from each game they have installed on their computer. This will make using different games fast and easy. All the player info and hot key groups for each game will be safely stored on your desktop.
iZ3D monitors incorporate advances in technology that create significant competitive and technical advantages over other display systems. iZ3D developed this unique technology to create an adjustable stereoscopic 3D environment without causing eyestrain, spatial disorientation, or headaches. In 3D mode, viewers can see clear, bright, sharp 3D images and videos simply by wearing passive polarized glasses. Its smart capabilities allow it at the push of a button to go from the breath-taking 3D experience to the more mundane 2D viewing for regular office tasks or surfing the web.
The iZ3D 22" monitor offers the first S-3D drivers compatible with popular dual output cards, including the NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series and the ATI FireGL™ V3600 workstation graphics accelerator. These drivers are optimized to take advantage of Intel’s® Core™ 2 Duo and Intel® Core™ 2 Quad processor technologies. (iZ3D also features drivers that support Microsoft® DirectX® 8, 9 and 10 graphics in Windows® XP and Microsoft® Windows Vista™. The unit is powered by existing PCs equipped with a dual-output video card. Specifications include: 1680 x 1050 resolution; up to 170-degree 3D viewing angle; 5ms response time; 700:1 contrast ratio; and 16.7-million colors.
