Now you’re ready to turn on your 3D Vision glasses by a switch on the left temple that will turn a green light on. This light stays for 30 seconds and indicates that the glasses are working. The first thing you’ll notice as soon as you put your glasses on is how much darker your display looks. That is because each of your eyes is only receiving half of the light that they normally would.
The next page of the driver setup program will show you some test images. If you look at them, you will probably see random meaningless shapes. While wearing your glasses, if you close your left eye, you will only see some parts of the image, and if you close your other eye, you will see the other parts of the picture.
Together, this gives you the complete picture. The next page of the setup program will ask you if you see flickering. The next page will ask you if you see a 3D image popping out at you. The last page is a confirmation of completion, and now you have finished configuring your drivers.
So now we’re going to talk about the IR emitter. Wherever you place it, remember, it does need to have a direct line of sight with the glasses because they also have a receiver to talk to the emitter. At the back of this device, you will see a wheel control. That’s for controlling how much 3D depth you’re comfortable with. A lot of people will start off with a little 3D depth and work their way up to more and more depth as they get comfortable. There is also a port for 3D Sync In, which is for use with 3D Ready TVs. Some DLP 120Hz TVs happen to be 3D Ready.
The advantages of the Nvidia solution include “The Way It’s Meant To Be Played” program. That means that driver development is going to continue in future games, and there is actually a long list of games that are already supported by 3D Vision technology. The other huge advantage that it has over competed for solutions is that it does work with Nvidia SLI. 3D Vision is quite demanding on your video card because you need to run your games at 120 frames per second for the 120Hz monitor.
The system also has to render the images from two different angles which are very demanding, and SLI happens to be a huge advantage for this. The setup process is also quite advantageous because competing solutions take a lot longer to setup their devices with your system.
Once 120Hz displays become more popular, you’re going to be able to use your 3D Vision glasses with any computer and some DLP TVs.
