Support for 3D Vision Pro canceled by NVIDIA! The alternative by Schneider Digital is the 3D PluraView stereo monitor

By Eric Van Rees - 11th September 2020 - 07:56

In April of 2019, NVIDIA discontinued driver support for 3D Vision Pro technology for NVIDIA GPUs, which connected to the NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro kit with active LCD shutter glasses and 3D Vision-ready stereoscopic monitors for gamers, film fans and photographers alike.

The now-legacy 3D Vision Pro display solution was supported by a variety of professional software applications, such as Siemens NX, Adobe, Autodesk CAx, Dassault Systems, Agisoft, DAT/EM, Hexagon, Erdas and Halliburton/Landmark.

Not just because of the discontinuation of NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro kit, there is an increasing demand for improved, high-quality stereo visualization solutions in the growing professional 3D / VR market.

The flicker-free reference: the 3D-stereo monitor ‘3D PluraView’

The 3D PluraView from Schneider Digital is the passive 3D-stereo system with the highest user satisfaction and acceptance of all 3D display systems currently on the market. Launched in 2016, the PluraView monitors have quickly established themselves as the 3D stereo reference with up to 4K resolution, 10-bit color and screen diagonals up to 28".
With its eye-friendly stereoscopic display, the 3D PluraView are designed for professional users of high-end 3D-stereo applications. Their beam-splitter stereo technology has been proven since 2005 and offers the highest viewing quality for stereoscopic desktop displays. This technology ensures a perfect 3D-stereo experience with high resolution, even in office daylight conditions.

With its' two stereo screens, the 3D PluraView use a separate display for each stereo channel and eye, rendering stereo images in full resolution and brilliant brightness. For the operator, the stereo effect is achieved through passive, polarized and very lightweight glasses. Unlike active LCD shutter glasses, the PluraView monitors are perfectly suitable for regular and permanent work inside 3D-stereo environments.

3D PluraView – for all professional 3D-stereo applications

The PluraView 3D-stereo monitor is ideal for all stereo software applications, covering a wide range of industries: GIS, mapping, photogrammetry, oil & gas prospecting, molecular research and design, CGI / 3D video editing, CAD & mechanical engineering, crystallography / biochemistry, laser scanning and industrial measuring, simulation & VR training, 3D city model visualization, archeology, but also Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging for surgical planning and medical training.

Any software that supports the NVIDIA 3D Vision shutter technology can also be used with the 3D PluraView stereo monitors. Therefore, a transition to this proven, flicker-free technology is completely without risk. As a low-cost, entry-level model, we recommend the 3D PluraView Compact with dual 22" screens, Full-HD resolution for only €2,980.

Professional advice, solutions and support for all NVIDIA 3D Vision and Quadro users

Important information for users of NIVDIA Quadro graphic solutions: According to NVIDIA, the last driver to support the 3D Vision Pro kit, was issued in April 2019 and has the tag-ID 418.XX. All subsequent versions do not provide support for 3D-stereo.
Only critical security problems that may result from Windows updates were resolved until April 2020. After April 2020, users of 3D Vision kits depend on the previous driver versions. As an authorized NIVIDIA partner, we are happy to advise you on the optimal graphics solution for your software applications, especially for 3D / VR use.
