3DTV Play Now Available

We know you’ve been waiting for it, and I’m pleased to let you know that the standalone version of NVIDIAs 3DTV Play software is now available at the NVIDIA Store for $39.99 (USD).

For those of you who aren’t familiar with 3DTV Play but have already been enjoying 3D content on your PC, you might want to check it out.

NVIDIA 3DTV Play is now available

3DTV Play lets you easily connect your GeForce-based PC or notebook to an HDMI 1.4 3D HDTV to play your favorite 3D games – e.g., Call of Duty: Back Ops, HAWX2, Mafia II, and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm – as well as view high-res 3D photos, and watch Blu-ray 3D movies and 3D videos.  And, if you have a compatible HDMI audio/video receiver, you can also add HD digital surround sound audio to the experience.

You can find a complete list of 3DTV Play software-supported 3D HDTVs and A/V receivers at: www.nvidia.com/3dtvplay.

Until now, 3DTV Play was only available only for 3D Vision customers and included in select notebook PCs, but now, everyone can experience 3D on the “big screen.”

We hope you enjoy it, and let us know what you think.

    So, where is this 14 day trial I keep reading about? I can’t find it anywhere on nvidias 3dtv play page or in their shopping cart.

    what is different between 3b vision with 3d tv play…?

  • Trev

    3D Vision includes an IR transmitter and glasses and is designed for use with a 120Hz monitor for 3D content. 3DTV Play (standalone) is designed to be used with a 3D tv, it does not include NVIDIA IR transmitter or glasses but will be used with the glasses and transmitter for your tv.

    I too am waiting for word on the 14 day trial, I’ve already spent too much money to throw more away in the hopes that this will work with my setup. And with competitors offering trials I think it is a necessity rather than a nicety of NVIDIA wants to sell this product.

    This is great news, but I’m confused on one thing regarding 3DTV Play. Does it require the purchase of a 3D Vision kit? In other words, if I have a custom built PC with a 3DTV capable Nvidia graphics card and an approved 3DTV (Samsung PN58C7000 with it’s own glasses and IR transmitter) do I still need the 3D vision kit?

    3DTV Play, now available separately does not require the 3D Vision Kit. The version which has been available up until now does require the 3d Vision IR transmitter.

    With the software standalone it will use the IR transmitter in your tv. The software will basically just output the image in a 3d format (eg side by side) which your tv can display as 3d.
