Electrograph Shows 'Glasses-Free' Gaming with Philips 3D Solutions WOWvx Displays; Philips 3D Integrator Certification Available in October
August 29, 2008 - HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK - Electrograph Systems, Inc., a leading national distributor of display technology products and services, will premiere the USA's first residential 3D gaming system with the Philips 3D WOWvx 42" LCD display in Booth #1000 during CEDIA EXPO, September 4 -7, 2008, in Denver, Colorado.
According to Jeff Jerome, director of product management for Electrograph Systems, Inc., "There is nothing more addicting to kids, teens and even adults than modern video games. In fact, many underutilized home theaters are now serving as supersized game rooms. So imagine the appeal of true 3D gaming - without the glasses - that the whole family can play." He continued, "This introduction opens up a whole new category for CEDIA installers, who can now offer their existing residential customers the latest technology trend. The system produces such stunning 3D effects that most players actually forget it's a game."
3D Effects Without Special Viewing Glasses
The Philips 3D Solutions WOWvx display and proprietary software drivers create a system that is capable of running many of the PC -based games on the market. Far superior to systems that use special red/green glasses or helmet -based virtual reality, the gaming experience is far less confining and can accommodate multiple players in a wide range of viewing angles while producing a real "out -of -screen" 3D effects.
Marketed for professional use in digital signage applications, the 20" (20 -3DW02) and 42" (42 -3D6W02) displays also offer 3D action for gamers. The 3D LCD monitors from Philips 3D Solutions use WOWvx technology, which makes content richer, more exciting and more entertaining for the viewer. Using multiview lenticular technology, the displays are based on a full high -definition 1920x1080 LCD panel resolution and offer 1500:1 contrast as well as true -color representation. Integrated display signal processing provides full control over the quality and depth effect characteristics of the picture.
