Projector specialists, NEC Display Solutions, have put together a 3D starter kit to accompany their growing range of 3D-enabled home cinema projectors.

The add-on kit provides viewers with active 3D glasses and sample education, simulation, engineering and design software. It will also contain some examples of 3D pictures and movies to test the viewing. The pack will be compatible with the brand's NP115, NP210 and NP216 projectors.

The universal software for the stereoscopic playback of pictures and videos from 3Dtv is included in the deal. The technology supports a range of formats such as AVI, MPEG, WMV ASF or MOV.

3Dtv has also developed a separate version of this software especially for NEC Display Solutions, which is crucial for playing films and pictures with 3D effects to the best quality.

Also included in the kit are demo versions of "Eureka", a software program from Designmate for the 3D representation of scientific concepts for educational purposes. Users will also find Discover Sound and Discover Maths, 3D interactive applications from Amazing Interactives that explore the human senses and help to facilitate the teaching of Geometry. 


The NEC 3D starter kit is available to anyone purchasing an NEC NP115, NP210 or NP216 projector while stocks last.
