3D at a Glance
Our focus of testing this device will be through the entertainment world, of which gaming and watching films are the main ingredients. The full immersion into the gaming world is usually created by a combination of excellent graphics and game play within the game itself. This traditionally, before the TRIMON's existence would have to be represented on a 2D screen, with 3D being "simulated" to trick our eyes into seeing deeper than the screen we are viewing. IMAX has gone that much further, creating a massive screen which is so big, as to take up a great deal of our peripheral vision and thus "tricking" us even further by giving the impression that images are coming out of the screen directly towards us.
Now enters the TRIMON, a 22" monitor with an immaculate finish, supporting a maximum resolution of up to 1680x1050 (16:10) at 60Hz. The look and feel of the product cannot be harped on enough. If this were bought solely for 2D applications, I would be very happy. Fortunately, the 3D aspect is also included and thus makes this review doubly interesting.
Continuing from my train of thought about 3D, the TRIMON does what the IMAX does, in that the content seems to project out of the screen to an area somewhere in front of it. This only happens if you wear the polarized glasses that are included with the monitor.
If you do not wear the glasses, then you can't get that third dimension feeling, but the content is still perfectly acceptable, as if it was a normal 2D monitor. The monitor comes with a CD for all your driver needs as well as a nifty Stereoscopic player dedicated for the Zalman product.
The manual is on the included CD and explains quite clearly how you can optimize your 3D viewing options with the 3D NVIDIA Drivers. One thing worth mentioning is that the tutorial which guides you is with reference to the "classic view" GUI of the NVIDIA drivers. There are some sample movies available on the CD, one of them an old steam train, which seems to leap out at you as it approaches. This is a very cool feature indeed.
I went further and downloaded from the Stereoscopic website a 3D-rendered Katana movie that panned around the Katana sword.
