HP today unveiled an expanded portfolio of 3-D offerings with the the HP Photon Engine solution as well as the new all-in-one HP TouchSmart 620 3-D Edition PC, the HP 2311gt 3-D monitor and the HP Wireless TV Connect.
The HP Photon Engine solution enables a variety of businesses, such as manufacturing or fashion, to create 3-D experiences and decision support applications for customers. The Photon Engine image software generates images with up to half a pixel of resolution, minimizing eye strain and fatigue. This also enables the creation of realistic 3-D images in ambient light, visible from any angle on display surfaces that scale from two feet to hundreds of feet.
Powered by an HP Z800 Workstation, the HP Photon Engine solution uses multiple projectors to create a scalable "super projector." HP's image processing software mathematically blends light sources to generate high-resolution images by painting with dots of light on any straight or curved surface.
In addition to delivering 3-D content, the HP Photon Engine solution lets users view structured or unstructured data - including unlimited streams of 2-D video, internet content, documents and photos - on single or multiple surfaces to support rapid decision making. Users also can move and manipulate data from a wireless device such as a tablet or smartphone on the shared surface and collaborate to solve complex problems.
The HP Photon Engine solution is currently available in the United States, with pricing based on customization.
The new HP TouchSmart 620 3-D Edition PC offers 3-D entertainment in a high-performance PC. Users can create their own 3-D videos and pictures with the HP TouchSmart PC's built-in webcam and share them with family and friends online or via the unit's 23-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) display. The TriDef 3D game player allows everyone in the family to enjoy playing their favorite games in 3-D.
The TouchSmart 620 3-D Edition swivels up to 180 degrees and reclines up to 60 degrees, enabling users to adjust the display's position to reduce glare while viewing 3-D content with the PC's stereoscopic 3-D glasses.
In addition to exclusive HP features like LinkUp and Beats Audio, the HP TouchSmart 620 3-D Edition offers the latest version of HP TouchSmart software, premium graphics and processors.
The HP TouchSmart 620 3D Edition PC is expected to be available on Nov. 15 exclusively at HP Home & Home Office for $1,599.99 after an instant rebate of $300.
The HP 2311gt 3-D monitor features an ultraslim 23-inch diagonal LED backlit display based on the Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology. It comes bundled with two pairs of 3-D glasses, software from Cyberlink and DDD as well as a 3-D movie trailer for the animated film "Puss in Boots" from DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. With Cyberlink's PowerDVD, users can convert their existing 2-D content such as photos and videos into 3-D content, and DDD?s TriDef 3D game player lets users play their favorite 2-D games in 3-D.
The HP 2311gt 3D monitor is expected to be available on Nov. 8 in the United States at a starting price of $299.99.
The latest generation of the HP Wireless TV Connect allows users to stream both 2-D and 3-D content from a PC directly to a television. WHDI certified, it features a smaller design and promises to deliver HD video with virtually no latency. Simply plug the receiver into a PC's HDMI port to instantly stream HD and 3-D movies, games and web applications directly to a television.
The HP Wireless TV Connect is expected to be available next month in the United States at a starting price of $179.99.
