Lenovo Unveils A 3D Display For Making Content
Lenovo is exhibiting a 27″ 3D monitor perfect for content creation in Berlin concurrent with the IFA. The effect is visible without glasses thanks to the switchable lenticular lens layer, and if preferred, the screen may also display 2D.
The ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor functions similarly to the Dimenco 3D screens that we have already seen. When questioned, Lenovo claims that the device was self-developed. The ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor, like Dimenco displays, separates the image into pixels for the left and right eyes using a layer of small lenses in front of the panel.
The screen has cameras for eye tracking so that it can determine where the user’s eyes are so that they view the right image. The lenticular lens layer can be turned off, allowing the screen to display two-dimensional images as well. This is crucial since, in 3D mode, the screen’s horizontal resolution is cut in half, giving the image a slightly gritty appearance.
The 3D Explorer software, a kind of launcher for other apps, is already installed on the screen. For instance, developers can utilize a 3D video player and an SDK to create 3D applications. Lenovo does not specifically name any programs, but it also guarantees support for already available productivity tools.
The 27″ IPS panel on the ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor features a 4k resolution. A 310cd/m2 maximum brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 99 percent DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color gamut coverage are all guarantees made by Lenovo. The refresh rate of the screen is 60Hz. The Thinkvision 27 3D Monitor offers an Ethernet port, a USB 3.2 hub with five ports, two HDMI 2.1 ports (with HDMI 2.0 speed), a DisplayPort 1.4 input, and USB-C docking with 100W power delivery.The Lenovo ThinkVision MC60 webcam can be linked for video conferencing.
In a few nations, sales of the ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor will start in February 2024; it’s unclear whether the Netherlands should be one of those nations. The price of the screen is 3000 euros.
