3D Vision


I own an HDTV and the manual says it supports 120 Hz mode. Is this display compatible with 3D Vision?

There are LCD HDTVs that are on the market that claim to display at 120 to 240 Hz refresh rate. These type of displays use framerate conversion or backlight flashing to convert 60 Hz signals to 120 Hz or above. This technology is incompatible and Not 3D Vision Ready.

Please see the 3D Vision System Requirements for a full list of 3D Vision—Ready displays. Displays not listed are not certified and thus not compatible.

What about NVIDIA’s 3D Vision Glasses? Will they work with a 3D TV?

Today NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses only work with NVIDIA 3D Vision-Ready PC monitors and projectors.  Panasonic TV glasses are used on the Panasonic TV. 3D Vision glasses kit owners will be able to download and use NVIDIA’s 3DTV Play software as a free upgrade to play their 3D content on 3D TVs. Panasonic and NVIDIA are working on glasses compatibility in the future, but today you cannot use 3D Vision glasses with the Panasonic 3D TVs.

I am experiencing flickering on screen during 3D Stereo gameplay.

Please check to make sure your LCD brightness is set to 100% on your monitor. If you are using a value less than 100% this can result in bad 3D Stereo effect. Also allow your display time to warm up for best image quality. Be aware that lighting, especially fluorescent lighting, can also cause flickering.

Will the 3D Vision glasses fit over prescription eye glasses?

Yes, 3D Vision glasses fit comfortably over most prescription eye glasses. If you normally wear glasses when viewing a computer screen, keep them on and put the wireless glasses over your eye wear. The sharper the image on the screen, the better the quality.

Will the GeForce 3D Vision kit be supported on the Mac platform?

There is no planned support for GeForce 3D Vision on the Mac platform at this time.
