Three reasons not to choose between 2D and 3D on the Planar UltraRes UR8450-3D

Although 3D has gone mainstream in the television and home cinema markets, so much so that it is taken for granted and hardly used in so many homes, the world of 3D visualization is growing strongly in commercial segments. The use cases for 3D vary from computational chemistry to geospatial engineering, from collaborative product visualization to design reviews of architectural projects. The best 3D experiences work with your body’s own visual system to create the 3D effect. It is, after all, an optical illusion. A trick to get each eye to think they are seeing stereo. Some systems use LCD shutter glasses and others, like Planar’s new UR8450-3D More…

Clarity Matrix 3D backbone of the most exquisite virtual reality environment ever made

When UIC researchers couldn’t buy the 3D technology they needed, Planar Systems made it for them The University of Illinois virtual reality environment, dubbed CAVE2, is approximately 24 feet in diameter and 8 feet tall, and consists of 72 near-seamless Clarity Matrix 3D LCD panels, a 36-node high-performance computer cluster, a 20-speaker surround audio system, a 10-camera optical tracking system and a 100-Gigabit/second connection to the outside world. CAVE2 provides users with a 320-degree panoramic environment for displaying information at 37 Megapixels in 3D or 74 Megapixels in 2D with a horizontal visual acuity of 20/20. To build CAVE2, in More…

The latest in 3D: the Clarity Matrix 3D goes live!

It's what the 3D Roundabout caught already at the prototype stage earlier this year, but now it is launched and being installed as well! First installation can be seen the University of Illinois Chicago's Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) in a class room setting. The Cyber-Commons 3D is a class room facility featuring six wide by three high Clarity Matrix 3D video wall, made from our 46" Clarity Matrix displays, which allows 2D and 3D visualization and collaboration. You can read more about the installation from EVL's own website. The new Clarity Matrix 3D will be at show this week at the SuperComputing 2011 at Louisiana State University, More…
