Planar SA2311W 3D Ready LCD Monitor

Planar today announced the SA2311W 3D ready desktop monitor, which leverages six years of expertise in manufacturing 3D monitors with the highest stereoscopic image quality available. Planar's SA2311W 3D display will offer a single monitor entree for the consumer market and an added option for the professional market.

The SA2311 utilizes the NVIDIA 3D Vision technology, to produce full 1920×1080 resolution stereo images that can be seen with NVIDIA 3D Vision and NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro active shutter glasses. The stereo image quality is the best available for frame sequential 3D technology. The monitor is competitively priced at $449 MSRP, attractive for use with a wide array of professional applications such as computational chemistry, CAD, and digital content creation, as well as for consumer markets like PC gaming. The SA2311W, a single monitor solution, provides 3D and 2D use capability, making it a convenient solution for professionals who do not require constant stereoscopic viewing.

NVIDIA 3D Vision consumer technology is a combination of a wireless infrared emitter, active shutter 3D glasses, and one of many compatible NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards and software, which delivers an immersive 3D gaming, video and photo experience on the SA2311W. NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro technology employs active shutter glasses and an innovative radio frequency (RF) communication system for use with Planar's 120 Hz monitor, in conjunction with NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics cards. Professionals can design, create and explore in stereoscopic 3D, enabling collaborative workflows on the SA2311W.

Planar uses cutting edge 120 Hz LCD technology to produce a 3D monitor with blazing fast response time. The 23″ screen is packaged in a sleek design that looks beautiful in both the home and work environments. The SA2311W also functions great as a 2D monitor and its speed makes it ideal for gaming or geospatial image roaming; however, the 3D capability is what differentiates the product from the competition.

Planar is offering the SA2311W bundled with the 3D Vision Kit and Planar's new ProGlow backlit keyboard. The keyboard features seven brightness levels including “off,” using an individual LED behind each of the 105 keys. This provides excellent keyboard visibility while wearing 3D glasses and/or when working (or playing) in a low ambient light environment.
