Optoma GT720 Special Features
GT720 3D Capabilities
The GT720 offers a limited selection of 3D abilities, as is typical of first generation 3D 720p projectors we've seen. It supports 120hz field sequential up to 720p. What the GT720 can't do is support Blu-ray 3D and at least some other 1080p 3D formats. Again, this is typical.
Optoma offers the 3D-XL processor, which is compatible with the full range of 1080p 3D solutions, and goes between source and projector.
We recently reviewed a similar product, the Viewsonic VP3D1, using this projector. Give or take a few strange artifacts, and a little trouble on occasion with a few Blu-ray 3D disks when using a PS3, the Viewsonic combined nicely with the Optoma. One would expect the 3D-XL to do at least a comparable job.
The GT720 is Nvidia certified! That's a big thing in the gaming world, and does indicate that hundreds of 2D games can be rendered on the fly into 3D. (Remember, those 2D games are designed in 3D to begin with.)
