DAT/EM Systems International has enhanced the viewing capabilities of the SUMMIT EVOLUTION Digital Stereoplotter by integrating Planar's SD1710 3D desktop monitor as an optional component of the system.
The SD1710 3D desktop monitor is a novel stereoscopic monitor that has been developed combining the output of two active matrix LCD's into a stereo image through use of a unique beam splitter design. This approach creates a stereo/3D monitor that retains the full resolution, response time and color characterization of the component displays. The resultant flicker-free image, when viewed with passive polarizing glasses, provides an unprecedented level of viewing comfort in stereo.
