NVIDIA releases software for browser enabled 3D, Farmville will never be the same


Seems like NVIDIA is pushing their 3D technology out to the masses as they’ve released their 3D Vision video player technology to web developers for free, hopefully to entice them to make websites for streaming high-quality 3D video to 3D Vision-equipped PCs. They’ll be the first company to deliver a 3D video plug-in for the Microsoft Media Platform (MMP)Player Framework v2.5 (F.K.A. Silverlight Media Framework) with support for active-shutter 3D glasses. The plug-in is based on the same technology that powers NVIDIA’s popular 3D Webcommunity, (www.3DVisionLive.com). The MPP Player Framework is open-source code that enables developers to quickly deploy robust, scalable, customisable media-player applications for the Web,based on Microsoft Silverlight and with full support for IIS Smooth Streaming and MicrosoftPlayReady DRM.

“With NVIDIA’s new 3D video plug-in, developers can now take full advantage of the stereoscopic 3D video streaming support available in the latest version of Microsoft Media Platform PlayerFramework,” said David Sayed, senior product manager at Microsoft Corp. “Microsoft is delighted to work with NVIDIA to deliver exciting functionality and capabilities to help developers build thenext wave of websites powered by the Microsoft Media Platform.”

If all goes according to plan, it won’t be long till you’ll be able to farm those crops in full stereoscopic 3D.
