iZ3D is the designer, developer and marketer of a 17" 3D LCD monitor choosen to be used in the CounterStrike 5v5 play of the 2nd Annual V-Sports All-Star Tournament.
The tournament is being hosted by the GGL (Global Gaming League) during the E3 show, 10-12 May 2006.
The monitor has dual DVI inputs and obtains the 3D effect by having the user wear passive polarized glass. Intended to replace a standard two-dimensional monitor, it offers standard monitor performance specification for quality and display brightness, while supporting long-time viewing without causing fatigue or eyestrain.
Because viewers can see 3D images and videos wearing passive glasses, it eliminates the need for shutter glasses, goggles, or helmets.
The unit is powered by any PC with a dual output video card. Smart capabilities allow it to be used for regular 2D office tasks as well as 3D viewing. Specifications include: 1280 x 1024 resolution; up to 140-degree viewing angle; 8 ms response time; 400:1 contrast ratio; and 16.2-million colors.
