Best compatibility ever! Coolest design ever!

The Another Eye2000 by Another World, Inc. is a wired 3D-shutterglasses system for real 3D visuals on a standard tube monitor.

For the past 4 years I was begging the 3D-industry to come up with a system which not only supports all imaginable 3D-formats (like H3D or Eye3D-4-in-1), but also gives the user full manual control over all modes. Only full manual control guarantees 100% comatibility to all 3D-drivers, native 3D-programs and 3D-content (such as images and videos). It's also the only way to get a system working under non-Windows operating systems.

The new Another Eye2000 is the first commercial product which has the controller-features demanded by The functions are controlled by a remote in the glasses-cable. The comfort and ease of use is just great compared to most other products.

This doesn't mean the E2000 has no problems. Like any system  it has it's drawsbacks.

The glasses are hard to use over prescribed glasses. The Another Eye2000 press themselves against the temples. The bows of  any prescribed glasses are in the way. The shutterglasses must be placed above the bows of the prescribed glasses. It's somewhat difficult to allign the glasses and the shutterglasses in this situation. The pressure on the temples is quite soft, but over time it may cause discomfort.

The quality of synchronization my test sample shows is average and could be better. It seems to be somewhere between the good ones (NuVision 60GX, StereoGraphics EPC2) and the bad ones (ASUS, ELSA Revelator). Inaccuracies in synchronization may appear as darker stripes on top or bottom of the screen, uneven distribution of brightness over the screen or perceivable flicker even at high refresh. The effect varies with graphics mode, refresh, vga-board, monitor, cabling and may even spread within the same controller model line.

For more pro and con check the Pro & Con table below.

Despite any problems  the unprecedented compatibility and the ultra-cool design should be too much for anyone to resist. In any case it beats it's predecessor, the wireless Another I's

There should be a distributor on the US-market soon.

The lower part not only looks like a walkman headphone, it's adjustable in the same way.

It slides and bends!
I wouldn't overdo this though, since there are tiny wires moving inside the bows, which may wear out over time.

The proprietary cable for the glasses. Mini DIN-8 to 2.5 mm

The power cable draws power from a PS/2 type pass-through keyboard connector

This remote in the glasses-cable gives you  unprecedented,
god-like powers in the stereo3d-world.
There's an on/off switch,
a reverse button and
a magnificent MODE button to choose between
autosync --> line-blank --> sync-double
That's all you'll ever need.

The VGA-pass-through controller syncs to any page-flipping or interlace signal and also provides line-blanking and sync-doubling.

I pushed it up to 1280x1024@75Hz line-blanking and
1280x1024@75/150Hz sync-doubling.
No problems!
