Neotek wired glasses with large LCD-panels and extra-long cable. Standard 3.5 mm stereo connector.
  Check the x-ray page for specs.

Neotek is specialized in the above-below split screen 3D-format which requires sync-doubling to produce a shutterglasses compliant image on the monitor.

Neotek Model SS shutterglasses controller.
It sits between VGA-board and the monitor and does sync-doubling only. It is controlled by a native Neotek line-code pattern which is incompatible to the H3D pattern of course!!!
To be precise the Neotek code is most likely of an older date than the H3D code.
While I had no problems with the H3D sync-doubler back then, the Neotek SS caused problems when used with my Idek Iiyama Vision Master 17 monitor. The Iiyama monitors are known to behave odd in conjunction with sync-doubler controllers. The point is that if the VGA-signal isn't perfectly stable the Iiyama monitor will interpret this as a mode-change and goes black to switch to another of the digitally stored mode-settings.
I expect that the Neotek SS will work fine on other monitors as long as they manage the 120 Hz refresh rate. By setting your VGA-card to 60 Hz refresh the controller will produce this high, flicker free refresh frequency. That's one of the major advantages of sync-doubling.

Neotek Model SSN shutterglasses controller which does sync-doubling only.
It was designed with DVD/MPEG2 digital video in mind (TriDVD) and is triggered by a proprietary signal on the parallel port instead of a line-code pattern.
This makes it incompatible to older Neotek software, like the Human Anatomy Lab! Parallel port software, like LCD-BIOS also does NOT work!
Have you Neotek- and H3D-guys ever heard of a recent, brilliant invention called "BUTTON" ????
Actually they have! In the past some companies offered sync-doubler controllers with buttons, but to save cost and to support the 'dumb user' they more and more go for some control code. A product like the Human Anatomy Lab would be very uncomfortable to use with a manual sync-doubler device since it switches between the 2D-desktop and the 3D-format every now and then.

CD in above-below stereo format for sync-doubler controllers. A professional product for students of medicine and adjacent disciplines. The detailed images show what's inside a dead human body. Not an entertainment title, at least not for sane people. The material is well documented and presented. Actually there are extensive sound files with narration to describe every detail. For example all terms in the above picture are also spoken! There's a quiz-mode too. Again, this is only interesting to students of medicine who had their share of Latin in highschool!

With the complexity of the structures depicted stereoscopic 3D really makes sense here. In 2D this product wouldn't make much sense.
I will show the CD to some medical doctors I know and ask for their opinion on the piece. Please stand by.

All in all over 200 images in 14 chapters, including discections, bones and radiographs.
The images are stored in a proprietary 1024 x 768 truecolor format.
Code pattern for the Neotek Model SS is provided.
The CD will also work for the homebrew and other switchable sync-doubler controllers, but without the control pattern it's gonna be an uncomfortable experience.
Check back to this page again later for more details.
