NVIDIA demos 3D Blu-ray movie

Graphics card maker NVIDIA has recently demonstrated a 3D movie using its 3D shutter glasses and an Acer G245 monitor that can be synchronized with them. While the name of the blockbuster cannot be revealed, the movie playback is said to be on par with other 3D movies shown by the company. It's even being compared to theater 3D movies, but is delivered on Blu-ray discs that are backwards compatible with regular Blu-ray players.

The 3D Blu-ray uses MVC-AVC format encoding that sends regular 1080p video for hardware that doesn't support a 3D image. The technology will be supported by NVIDIA's current GeForce GT 220 and GT 240 GPUs as well as its upcoming Fermi cards that are due next year.

More information and companies with 3D Blu-ray support are expected to be at the upcoming CES show, including AMD. [via Engadget]
