Neurok OpticsTM, LLC, a designer, developer, and marketer of advanced 3D visualization systems, has announced that its revolutionary iZ3D 17" LCD monitor will be the exclusive monitor used in the CounterStrike 5v5 play of the 2nd Annual V-Sports All-Star Tournament. Hosted by the GGL (Global Gaming League), the all-star competition honors the best of the best in worldwide video gaming. The event will be held during the E3 show, May 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The advanced iZ3D video monitor is capable of displaying impressive into and out-of-screen 3D images with passive polarized glasses. Specifically designed to replace the standard two-dimensional monitor, it offers commercial-grade image quality and display brightness, while supporting long-time viewing without causing fatigue or eyestrain. Its advanced technology works with all popular applications, and allows users to gather and use more information in a more sophisticated way than standard 2D monitors permit.
iZ3D technology represents significant proprietary, competitive, and technical advantages over other display systems. Neurok Optics' engineers developed this unique technology to create "wow"- inspiring 3D depth without causing eyestrain or spatial disorientation, headache, or nausea.
In 3D mode, viewers can see 3D images and videos wearing passive glasses, eliminating the need for shutter glasses, goggles, or helmets. Its 3D images are clear, bright, and sharp, representing a breakthrough in polarization management.
The unit is powered by any PC with a dual output video card. Smart capabilities allow it to be used for regular 2D office tasks as well as 3D viewing. Specifications include: 1280 x 1024 resolution; up to 140-degree viewing angle; 8 ms response time; 400:1 contrast ratio; and 16.2-million colors.
"I play using the iZ3D monitor regularly and I can tell you it is the closest thing to being on the Holodeck," stated Ted Owen, founder and chairman of GGL. "We are extremely excited to have the iZ3D monitor for use in our All Star tournament. 3D gaming is no longer a far-off dream. This unit demonstrates the unbelievable realism possible 3D viewing presents to the gaming industry. I hope everyone attending E3 will take time to see it in action."
