i was looking at the specs of ATI Radeon™ HD 5770.
Where it mentions - 3D stereoscopic display/glasses support. (Requires 3D stereo drivers, glasses, and display.)
What I am building is My own HiDef media-gaming PC. I was trying to explore the option of viewing 3D movies, ect. and I have a few basic questions...
1. Do I need a display device capable of showing 3D? Would a HiDef 720p or 1080p monitor suffice?
2. I read a bit about stereoscopic images, and I understood that breaking up the Graphics into left and right eye images is what provides this ability. I presume this processing is essentially done by a graphics card. So from my understanding, a HiDef monitor, a capable processor & the graphics card should do it. No need to spend crazy money on an expensive large 3D TV. Am I right or have i missed something?
3. If yes, then i can use my comp to view 3D movies on a HiDef TV.
Only a 3d TV will work, even if you have a 120hz 1080p TV it's not going to be capable of 3D unless it has HDMI 1.4b or a dual link dvi input. Most TVs that advertise as 120hz don't actually have any 120hz inputs, they just interpolate frames on standard HDTV broadcasts, so no you will not be able to watch 3d movies on a regular HD TV.
Also the 5770 does not have HDMI 1.4 so even if you had an expensive 3d TV you wouldn't be able to use your PC to output 3d movies or games to it.
the emmitter is the thing that connects to the pc or is built into the TV that sends out an IR signal to tell the glasses when to blink each eye to synch with the screen, it comes with the nvidia glasses kit. 3d tvs have it built into the set usually.
