Okay, Apple, take note: Nvidia has unveiled 3DTV Play software that will let users connect 3D notebooks and desktops running its 3D Vision technology to 3D high-definition TVs for a “big-screen entertainment experience,” the company says.
According to “InformationWeek” (http://www.informationweek.com/news/software/hosted/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=227900606), any compatible Nvidia GeForce graphics processing unit (GPU)-powered system running the 3DTV Play software can be connected to an HDMI 1.4 3D HD TV, letting users view 3D photos and videos on a larger screen. They will also be able to play some 500 games in 3D — more than any other platform — according to Nvidia.
When the compatible video playback software is employed, users can also watch Blu-ray 3D movies in full 1080 stereoscopic 3D, along with HD digital surround sound with an HDMI connection to a compatible audio/video receiver, notes “InformationWeek.” A new line of Dell XPS laptops rolled out Friday come bundled with the Nvidia 3DTV Play software.
Apple, what say you?
