Dual Projector 3D questions

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I would like to do a dual projector passive 3D setup. I don't want to use a PC. It will be for Bluray only. Is there a convertor box like (3DXL or 3D Displayer) that takes the signal from a 3D bluray player and outputs the correct image to each projector? I know I need filters for each projector. What else is needed?

At the moment, this is no box available to convert hdmi1.4 directly to dual-outputs.
You have to use a series of devices (clone/splitter then two Optoma 3DXLs) which is quite expensive.

If you are interested in the Dual Projector setup, I suggest you have a look at the "ultimate 3D projector thread" in the 3000+$ projector section of this forum :

There is a box its called GEOBOX by VNS I use it. I have it hooked up to my computer, ps3 and xbox 360 it was worth every penny.

Their website doesn't seem to work at the moment.
I also can't find a shop that sells it, how much does it cost ?

I found a copy of the specs on a PDF brochure, it doesn't say clearly whether or not the unit supports stereo 1080p (full resolution) at more than 24Hz. (Full resolution 1080p60 is what interests me the most) I guess it does not though hdmi but the unit has a Display Port input... so.... maybe ?
Have you tried it on your unit ?

The hd fury 4 does just this, but you would need two of them. One for each projector set to left and right. These are 399 per box. I had one to try and make my 60 htz projector 3d but the flicker was just too much to deal with, but I would think it would work well for a dual projector set up. Keep in mind though it cost me 100 bucks to send it back to taiwan since it didn't work well enough for a 60 htz set to make it active shutter capable. Check out their website. Just google HD fury or 3d fury and you'll find it.

does 1080p/60 even exist right now? For 3D? Other than maybe checkerboard?

Yes it exists, I currently use it for my Dual projectors, but the open standardized ways of doing it aren't used currently.
Here are the ways I know of :
-Dual outs (what I use for my dual FullHD projectors)
-DVI Dual link + Nvidia 3D Vision proprietary format (you probably heard about it)
-DVI Dual link + Viewsonic/AMD proprietary format (used in 1 monitor and never used again)
-Display Port 1.1 / 1.2 standardized format (supported for 2 years by AMD cards and this year's new Nvidia cards : used by a couple of Samsung monitors)
-Hdmi 1.4 full bandwidth standardized format aka Hdmi 1.4 3GHz (supported by this year's AMD cards and this year's new Nvidia cards; but so far no display uses it)

1080p ..... 60Hz ?
What source and which connection did you try, I want to make that an absolute positive, otherwise this box would be completely useless to me, I am absolutely not interested by upscaling or up sampling.
I need 1080p, at 60Hz, with full resolution per eye, through a standardised input (I want to get rid of my dual-outputs from my PC to solve my software problems)

we will be offering the geobox 501 with our filter kits and also a nice metal dual stack rack. still trying to work out pricing. ive run my xbox 360 thru my 501 and the display says its finding it at 1080 60 hz. ive also found i can run Real player sp ( the free one ) on my pc to play sbs 3d videos really nice thru the geobox.

1080p60 SBS is nice for Xbox as a backup for PC, but the current PC graphics cards can provide better than that.
I need 1080p60 Full-resolution stereo through a single cable. (get rid of the dual-outs)

ive got an HDMI out ATI radion i will install and try with the 501 box. that would be a single cable out. ive got ut3 and CoD 4 that should test the ability to run in this setup on a PC. i too like to get away from the dual cables, other than the two hdmi for the projectors for now at least. im building a test bench prototype of my single projector solution tongue.gif

I'm looking forward for your results.
When I read the G501 specs I have some doubts it can do the full 1080p 60Hz Hdmi frame-packing.
Don't forget to also try the DisplayPort input, it may work differently.
