Cooliris Enables NVIDIA 3D Vision Support

June 2, 2009

Cooliris is Unveiled in True 3D at Computex 2009, Enabling Users to Experience Their Favorite Media on a Real Multi-dimensional Wall.

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 2 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Cooliris announced that NVIDIA is using the Cooliris Wall to demonstrate its revolutionary 3D Vision experience at Computex 2009, one of the largest technology fairs in the world. NVIDIA 3D Vision(R) is the world’s first high-definition 3D stereo solution for home entertainment. Merging the two technologies, the Cooliris Wall was unveiled in true 3D for the first time, making it possible for users to enjoy their favorite media on a real three-dimensional wall.

NVIDIA 3D Vision combines high-tech wireless glasses, a high-power IR emitter, and advanced software that works exclusively on GeForce(R) GPUs to generate visual experiences in full stereoscopic 3D – transforming traditional games, videos, and photos into a wholly immersive, multi-dimensional experience.

“We are excited to be coordinating closely with NVIDIA on providing consumers with a thrilling 3D experience,” says Marc Shedroff, Head of Distribution and Content Partnerships at Cooliris. “The Cooliris application fits naturally with NVIDIA’s new 3D Vision technology, and enables users to enjoy the awesome content that they have grown accustomed to in a revolutionary way in Cooliris.”

By combining the NVIDIA 3D Vision technology with the Cooliris application, users can see the Cooliris Wall of media as if it has real depth going into their computer screen. When they select images to be enlarged, the images appear to seamlessly pop out of the screen, giving the illusion that an infinite world of images is at their fingertips. This enables Cooliris users to dive deeper into online news, photos and videos, social networks, and other media content as if it were floating right in front of them.

“NVIDIA 3D Vision technology is the perfect platform for showcasing just how cool the Cooliris application really is,” says Ujesh Desai, vice president of GeForce GPU business at NVIDIA. “Their flexible and dynamic interface when combined with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology creates a powerful experience that enables the user to consume rich media in a new and stimulating way.”
