Play 3D games, watch 3D movies on your computer. The device synchronizes 3D glasses with 3D players for computers and laptops. Many models of glasses are supported. Direct compatibility with NVIDIA 3D Vision stereo driver for PC games.



Key Benefits

The emitter synchronises the video image on the display screen with the switching side of the active shutter glasses. This results in a sufficiently high quality 3D image for a variety of display models and 3D glasses from different companies.

The device is equipped with multiple quality settings and adaptation to different displays and computers. Unlike other emitters, ours you can customize for maximum image quality on your equipment. The device supports a wide range of frame rates. You can connect almost any active 3D glasses by simply selecting a sync protocol from the list.

Allows you to use different types of glasses at the same time. For example with Bluetooth synchronisation and IR synchronisation. You can flexibly adjust the image quality separately to the specific glasses model.

Сhoose Glasses

For a quality picture, your display and computer should provide a frame rate of 100 FPS or more.

To ensure that the glasses fit your display, you should check that the polarization of the screen matches the polarization of the glasses. This depends on the angle at which the polarizing film is glued on the display and the glasses. The way to check is simple, look at your display screen through your glasses off, the screen should be clearly visible. If you turn it to either side, the image should darken. Many manufacturers do not keep the vertical polarization of the adhesive film and you will need to find glasses exactly for your display.

3D Glasses synchronisation protocols
Different glasses are controlled by their proprietary synchronisation protocols. S3D Emitter supports the 12 most used ones. You can choose the one you need from the list. The emitter memorizes all settings that have been made. At the link you can see an large list of different Active Shutter glasses and check which synchronisation protocol they use.

Supported Protocols

To connect the glasses you want, open the S3D Settings tab in the S3D Player app. If you are using Bluetooth glasses, enable Bluetooth Transmitter and select the desired protocol.

If you are using IR synchronized glasses, enable Infrared Transmitter and select the desired IR protocol. All settings will be saved inside the Emitter. This will also work when Emitter switching to NVIDIA mode.

Limitations

3D glasses from different companies have different frame rates. This emitter can work at anything from 50 to 255 Hz, but the glasses can`t. When you purchase 3D glasses, be sure to ask about the frame rate. This should match the FPS of your graphics card. Example: If your video card and display runs only up to 75Hz, the glasses should be able to work at that frequency. Typically, the operating interval of most 3D glasses is between: 100 - 144Hz. They will not work at 75Hz. Your graphics card and display must also support the 100 - 144Hz range. Be attentive.

Our S3D glasses have the widest working FPS range, they are guaranteed to support all existing frame rates from 50 to 255 FPS. S3D Glasses

Recommendation

The IR channel can give a significant pulsed emitting power. This can be adjusted in the control menu. For NVIDIA glasses, the range of stable operation can be up to 15 meters. Try to use the lowest magnitude that is sufficient for the operation of the glasses. Prolonged operation at higher powers will cause degradation of the IR LED. Do not overload them unnecessarily.

Manual Control

For quick setting of operation modes, there are 3 buttons on the back of the S3D Emitter. The + and - buttons for directly fine-tuning the 3D image quality. The button NVIDIA - S3D quickly switches the type of driver being used. You can jump to NVIDIA 3D VISION mode or return to advanced S3D mode. The Emitter quickly reloads the communication drivers. S3D mode supports many more settings and is higher quality.


Firmware Update

The softwares inside S3D Emitter are very complex and there are still plenty of hidden bugs. We we periodically find and fix them, and improve functionality. For example add new features or additional protocols for new glasses. You can download the new firmware to the emitter yourself. Download the Firmware update files below. Use the DFU updater App to fill files to device.

There are 2 files in the zip archive. The update for the main processor and the bluetooth mcu update. Download them sequentially to the emitter. If the bluetooth file not attached, then it does not need to be updated.

To update firmware do the following steps:
1. Open the update DFU application
2. Disconnect the Emitter from the computer
3. Press and hold the "+" button for Bluetooth
3. Press and hold the "-" button for Main cpu
4. Plug the Emitter into the USB port
5. Click the line with the module name
6. Select the firmware by the File button
7. Press the Prog button and wait for done
8. Launch new firmware by clicking Run
