EE Times writes Mitsubishi teamed up with NVIDIA to show off the capabilities of its 3D-ready digital TVs at CES 2009:
At the Consumer Electronics Show, Mitsubishi showed its big-screen digital TVs using a new $199 stereoscopic 3-D package from Nvidia to play computer games. The Nvidia 3D Vision product, announced earlier this week, uses special drivers to generate stereo 3-D images of standard computer games written for the Microsoft DirectX application programming interface.
Mitsubishi has had 3-D-ready versions of its large-screen Digital Light Processing (DLP) TVs on the market for some time. Until today they lacked content except for a handful of movie trailers Hollywood studios provided in a format suitable for the DLP set.
The TV uses the micro-mirror technology of Texas Instruments to support stereo 3D using either a checkerboard pixel or side-by-side (left and right image) format. Samsung has released similar 3-D ready TVs using plasma displays that can also support a checkerboard pixel format. >/i>
