[Chimera-users] Nvidia 3D Vision on a large display

Krish Raman asked what kind of large displays might work with Nvidia 3D Vision stereo glasses with Chimera.

Hi Krish,

  I believe any display capable of a high refresh rate, at least 120 Hz (even 100Hz would do) will be able to show stereo with Nvidia 3D vision.  Conventional 60 Hz displays could only show stereo at 30 Hz in each eye (since the display first shows the left eye, then shows the right eye in sequence), and 30 Hz is too slow causing flicker.   Video gaming displays are usually advertised as 144 Hz and I believe any of those would work.  It is hard to find big displays at 144 Hz, but here is an example, 49 inch ultra wide Samsung CHG90

If one person is using this sitting at a desk it is very wide and would probably give very nice immersive stereo because of the width.  It is not ideal for your use with an audience standing further back because of its extreme 32:0 aspect ratio.  You could look for a video gaming TV, such as these

Keep in mind your Nvidia 3DVision system may not work with any of these.  I would strongly recommend testing at a store with your 3DVision before buying.  Stereo is an an extremely obscure niche product and there is no telling if it will work without testing.

  Another option is to use a high refresh rate projector.  That is what we use at my lab -- (ours is a $50,000 Christie, so I don't recommend it).

  Also I am sure you are aware that Nvidia discontinued support for 3D Vision and it will not work with any Nvidia drivers released after April 2019.  So the 3D Vision system is going to be dead soon.
