3D Digital Cameras and Web Browsers

NVIDIA's 3D Vision isn't just for computers; they're also working with camera manufacturers. The first fruit of this collaboration is the Fuji Finepix Real3D W1 camera.

The camera uses twin lenses to capture two views of a scene simultaneously, creating a 3D image in the new "MPO" (Multi-Picture Object) image format, a standard defined by the Camera and Imaging Products Association (CIPA).

You can view the 3D images on a Fuji FinePix V1 Real 3D Viewer - a $500 item that looks like an 8" digital picture frame— or on your computer if you have a 3D Vision-capable monitor and shutter glasses. The Fuji Finepix Real3D W1 camera has an MSRP of $600 but is not widely available yet. At the NVIDIA briefing I was able to view some photos taken with this camera at a car show, and the 3D aspect of the bright still photos was striking. NVIDIA is planning to provide browser plug-ins that will enable online or local 3D viewing of MPO images.

NVIDIA's also working with YouTube and Google to bring 3D to web-based video, as well as web applications such as Google Earth. Look for browser plug-in's for FireFox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome in the near future.
