Eizo Intros its First 3D Monitor that Allows Naked Eye 3D Viewing

Eizo released its first 3D monitor that doesn't require you to put on any kind of 3D glasses. The DuraVision FDF2301-3D is a 23-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) monitor lets you see stereoscopic 3D video with your naked eye. It is an LED-illuminated LCD monitor that includes bidirectional backlight to provide several 3D viewing modes including Side by Side, Anaglyph, and Frame Sequential. Display inputs include two DVI-D and one VESA Stereo Sync port.

I feel like we are going back to the days of CRT monitors, at least in terms of girth. Still not as bad though just bigger than normal LCD screens.

Look at the size of that fucking bezel!

Praise glory to our bezel overlord!


In all seriousness, computer monitors are probably a good place to refine their glassesless 3D tech. Most of the glassesless TVs and screens out there are hugely limited by the viewing angle to properly see the 3D. As far as I know it's as little as 30deg viewing angle - making it totally useless as a TV unless you are sitting on a couch directly in front of the screen. However people usually do sit directly in front of their PC screens, so this could work.

Man do I hope this lasts. Only way to make this tech truly bearable. I wonder if this implementation works on a wider range of people. The glasses stuff not working on 1 out of 10 seems pretty unacceptable.

AWESOME! Finally 3D without glasses. Just a couple of years, and the technology will be more refined, with bigger monitors and thinner bezels. I wish I could get to experience this monitor IRL.

Looks like a CRT monitor accidentally fell into a time machine and came back out into this years first naked 3D screen. :roll:

Very interesting, needs a little work for use in a triple monitor setup though :laugh:

Just look at this baby monster. You cannot say you don't love its "design".
P.S. My ancient CRT looks thinner, haha!

with that much bezel why not add a built in sound bar and magnetically shielded Sub woofer (20watt-ish).

Cause surely theres a reason the bezel is that big and it houses something already so adding a soundbar and subwoofer would make it even bigger?

Surely that implies they dont need all that space and they made it like that for the looks? :wtf:

Indeed. At 16 kg there's a lot more going on than a regular LCD panel.

Will it blend?

That is what I want to know.

i'll have to wait until Tigerdirect has one in their store for me to ... see... I have a lazy eye and not all 3D effect things work for me.

Estimate price? $2000/3000?
Maybe more than that. Some standard Eizo monitors are nearly that much. (I only just found that out myself when I did a price search:eek:) We can be sure the quality will be high.

Possibly the bezel might be made smaller but as this monitor is not intended to be retail, it doesn't really matter too much right now. From their wesite, translated by Bing, "FDF2301-3D market assumes with SEM (scanning electron microscope) and semiconductor inspection equipment, and various academic institutions."
