Planar Introduces Entry-level StereoMirror 3D/Stereoscopic Display

Beaverton, Ore. - Planar Systems Inc., maker of specialty display solutions, has announced an entry-level version of its StereoMirror 3D/stereoscopic display. Planar's SD line of StereoMirror displays is designed to establish new levels of visual performance and comfort for professional applications, such as photogrammetry, computational chemistry, and virtual simulation.
The availability of the lower-cost, entry-level SD1710 makes it possible for larger audiences to deploy 3D monitors and for less frequent users of stereoscopic applications to benefit from the capabilities of this technology, says a representative.

For photogrammetry production houses and molecular modeling teams who want to put a StereoMirror monitor on every desktop, Planar's entry-level SD1710 maintains strong stereoscopic viewing performance. The new model supports 1280x1024dpi resolution in stereo and offers compatibility with graphics cards and stereo supportive software.

For users with critical daily applications requiring better resolution, the higher-end 20-inch SD2020, 24-inch widescreen SD2420W and 26-inch widescreen SD2620W support up to 1920x1200 resolution.

Sharper Technology is offering the SD1710 to its academic customers who have requirements for high-quality 3D visualization on a limited budget. The SD series uses StereoMirror technology to provide the high-quality stereoscopic image available in a desktop monitor and is composed of two LCD monitors in an up/down configuration separated at a 110-degree angle.

The SD series includes monitor sizes ranging from 17 to 26 inches, which are available for immediate delivery. All StereoMirror monitors and accessories are now available through Planar and direct resellers and come with a one-year warranty.
