Manufacturer Acer is adding two exciting new portable displays to its SpatialLabs stereoscopic 3D lineup. Both offer 100% coverage of the Adobe RGB color space and 400 nits of brightness. The Acer SpatialLabs View is aimed more at gaming and media content, while the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro presents even more versatility.
Acer SpatialLabs View and View Pro unveiled
Two new portable monitors complete with stereoscopic 3D display have been unveiled by Acer da today. The Acer SpatialLabs View for personal entertainment with games and media and the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro, which displays all content for a commercial audience.
Both monitors are standalone 15.6-inch (39.6 cm) 4K displays that can be connected to a PC. As such, they provide access to the full SpatialLabs suite.
Weighing less than 1.5 kg, the displays can also be easily taken anywhere, allowing content to be displayed in stereoscopic 3D in 4K at a maximum brightness of 400 nits, even for current games and home entertainment. However, it really gets exciting with the software options of the in-house suite.
SpatialLabs TrueGame – Stereoscopic 3D gameplay with one click
At the touch of a button, they make displays shine in 3D thanks to SpatialLabs TrueGame current and classic games. Over 50 modern titles and classic games are available at launch, with more games to follow over time.
SpatialLabs uses the depth information that the developers of the games have already embedded in the code to present the games in stereoscopic 3D. After launching the TrueGame application, all you have to do is navigate to the title you want to play and click “Play. The application will do the rest by automatically launching the necessary game files and activating the TrueGame 3D profile associated with the title.
This allows the titles to be displayed in three dimensions in real time and without the need for special glasses. Away from gaming, the Acer SpatialLabs View displays function as normal 4K monitors.
SpatialLabs Go converts 2D content into stereoscopic 3D content
Thanks to clever AI features, the SpatialLabs Go solution also allows users to “create stereoscopic 3D content from almost any full-screen content at the touch of a button,” according to the vendor.
This ranges from a three-dimensional representation of photos to browser games to online and offline videos. Even content created in-house is converted into simulated stereo 3D images once imported to a PC or notebook and displayed on the View display.
SpatialLabs Model Viewer: make your own 3D
The Acer SpatialLabs View Pro display is aimed primarily at creative minds, who are offered unique software in the form of the SpatialLabs Model Viewer. All major file formats are supported here, including Datasmith. 3D design software such as Revit, Solidworks and Cinema 4D can be used by installing a Datasmith export plugin.
Projects can be easily imported into the Model Viewer for viewing. Sketchfab integration further simplifies the creation process by giving users access to an extensive online library of free, high-quality 3D assets that they can use for their own projects.
For Creator, of course, accurate color representation is critical. That’s why the 15.6-inch Acer SpatialLabs View Pro offers full 100 percent Adobe RGB color space.
As with previous SpatialLabs devices, the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro includes several additional add-ons that improve workflow. Custom creations can be taken from the 3D software and launched in the SpatialLabs Model Viewer with just one click. In addition, Maya and Blender users can connect and edit content on a 2D screen and render it simultaneously, in real time, to stereoscopic 3D on the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro.
Pricing and Availability
The manufacturer plans to announce details on pricing and availability of both the Acer SpatialLabs View and View Pro displays at a later date.
