Matrox introduces single-card solution for digital stereoscopic monitors

SHARE

Matrox Graphics Inc. has introduced Parhelia Precision SDT, the world’s first single-card solution for digital stereoscopic (stereo-3D) monitors like the Planar SD1710. Such displays have 2 polarized LCD flat panels mounted one over the other and a special glass mounted between them. A realistic 3D view can be seen when looking at the glass though correspondingly polarized glasses. Other graphics cards for such displays require a separate add-in card to mirror the image for the top panel. Eliminating the need for this extra card reduces costs and improves reliability. This product includes hardware-based OpenGL (2D/3D) acceleration with quad-buffered stereoscopic support. For the multi-display support required with many stereoscopic workstations, Parhelia Precision SDT has been certified to work together with other Parhelia-series graphics cards. Matrox Graphics Inc. is a manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals.
