If you own a 3D capable system then you, like many, are constantly on the lookout for new 3D content and with today?s announcement from NVIDIA it looks like your search has just gotten a whole lot easier. NVIDIA announced today that they have partnered with a little video website name YouTube to deliver on demand 3D content directly from the video juggernauts website. This news should be music to the ears of the more than 100 million worldwide NVIDIA 3D Vision and 3D Vision-ready system owners. 3D content is great, but FREE on demand 3D content is a whole lot sweeter.
As of today, YouTube has enabled nVidia 3D Vision Viewing Experience with over 6,000 videos for launch
YouTube has been offering 3D content for some time through a myriad of 3D technologies running the gamut from anaglyph (think red and blue glasses) to interleaved and side-by-side solutions. Through close collaboration, YouTube and NVIDIA will offer viewing of 3D stereo view content via HTML5 directly from YouTube?s site.
Currently there are more than 6,000 3D videos on YouTube and with this most recent announcement that number is sure to grow. User-generated content is on the rise as commercially viable 3D cameras/video cameras from the likes of FujiFilm, Sony and others are steadily finding their way into the market. Another boon for 3D enthusiasts is the fact that users will be able to embed 3D content from YouTube directly onto their website.
There is a myriad of 3D recording devices on the market, and the number is growing day by day
Content is king when it comes to 3D and this announcement illustrates NVIDIA?s determination to drive 3D technology, and more importantly 3D adoption, forward. Since the initial launch of 3D Vision NVIDIA has been steadily building its own 3D content ecosystem with support for 3D pictures, 3D Blu ray movies, over 525 games as well as NVIDIA?s own online 3D community at www.3DVisionLive.com. So if you are one of the 3D Vision PC owners out there your access to 3D content just got a whole lot broader.
