Are 3D Vision 2 glasses compatible with 3D TVs?
No, 3D Vision 2 glasses are designed to work with 3D Vision monitors, notebooks, and Nvidia IR emitters.

How does 3D LightBoost technology work?
NVIDIA 3D LightBoost works by controlling the panel backlight to only turn on when the LCD screen contains a ghost free-image. Since that is a short period of time, the NVIDIA GPU can turn the backlight on with higher energy which results in increasing 3D brightness.

Will the first-generation 3D Vision wired/wireless glasses work with 3D LightBoost monitors and notebooks?
Yes, all 3D Vision glasses work with 3D LightBoost and will receive the benefits of brighter 3D. Also all glasses are 100% compatbile with all existing NVIDIA IR emitters.

Can existing 3D Vision monitors or notebooks be updated to support 3D LightBoost, via a firmware update, for example?
No. 3D LightBoost technology needs to be designed into new monitors and notebooks, it is not only done with new firmware.

Does NVIDIA 3D LightBoost work over HDMI 1.4 3D when connected to a Sony PlayStation 3, Blu-ray 3D Player, or set top box?
Yes, the 3D LightBoost technology will work over HDMI 1.4 3D as well and all content will receive the benefits of brighter 3D ‚?? games, movies etc.

Will 3D Vision 2 glasses work with existing 3D Vision Ready monitors, notebooks, and USB IR emitters?
Yes, users will be able to use the new 3D Vision 2 glasses with existing 3D Vision Ready monitors and Nvidia IR emitter. However, to experience NVIDIA 3D LightBoost, they will need to purchase a new a 3D LightBoost compatible monitor or notebook. Without a 3D LightBoost compatible monitor the glasses will perform no different from the first generation of 3D Vision.

I currently own a Toshiba Qosmio X750/X755 notebook, and the display seems brighter than typical displays. Is this 3D LightBoost technology?
Yes, Toshiba included 3D LightBoost in the Qosmio X750/X755 notebook. However, they decided to ship this notebook before the availability of 3D Vision 2 glasses, which means that users will not be able to fully experience the technology. This is why Toshiba didn‚??t announce 3D LightBoost support at the time of launch.

Where can I find a list of monitors and notebooks that support 3D Vision 2?
