Nvidia Announces 3DTV Play for GeForce 3D Vision

With the real foundations laid earlier this year at CES for 3D in home theaters, Nvidia today announced a merging of its 3D Vision technology with big screen gaming.

Nvidia announced its new 3DTV Play software technology that allows consumers to connect their GeForce GPU-powered desktop or notebook computer – as long as it has HDMI or DVI – to new 3D TVs supporting HDMI 1.4 and 1080p24, 720p60, and 720p50 3D formats.

Games that support Nvidia 3D Vision include World of Warcraft – Wrath of the Lich King, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Avatar: The Game.

Nvidia 3DTV Play software will be available later this spring and sold separately with an anticipated U.S. MSRP of $39.99. It will also be available for free for current Nvidia 3D Vision customers.

To promote its 3D tech gadgets, Nvidia has teamed up with Panasonic for a coast-to-coast 2010 "Panasonic Touch the Future Tour."

    Software and glasses? Good luck selling that.

    Will this offload the 3D processing onto the TV ? If not, I can't really see how this is new, or innovative, since it already works on 120 Hz TV's

    It won't offload anything to the TV. 3D TV's don't do the processing. At least not yet.
