3DVu Compatibility

 

   SMARTPHONE COMPATIBILITY CHART  

 

This list is prior to 2012.  Due to improvements in smartphone resolution we have found this viewer compatible with almost all phones made after that period.  

 

SMARTPHONE SIZE AND VISUAL REQUIREMENTS: 

 

In order for a smartphone to be compatible with the 3DVu viewer, it must satisfy three requirements:

 

1.  It must be able to physically fit into the viewer,

2.  When installed, its display must line up with the viewing area of the 3DVu

3.  Its display must be sharp enough to effectively reproduce the illusion of depth

 

A phone's ability to fit into the 3DVu viewer depends upon its overall height, width and depth. The adjustable cradle of the 3DVu was designed to accommodate a broad spectrum of smartphones currently on the market.  Since the smartphone is placed into the viewer with its longest side parallel to the viewer's horizontal axis, the phone's display must be able to be viewed in landscape format. 

 

The 3DVu viewing area measures approximately 3.125" wide by 2" high (3.71" diagonally) so the viewer can accommodate any smartphone with a similar or smaller display size.  Smartphones with larger display sizes may be able to work with the 3DVu viewer as long as the size of the 3D image displayed is able to completely fit within the viewable field in front of the 3DVu.  A larger model of the 3DVu2G0 for phones with displays up to 4.3" (measured diagonally) is scheduled for release to the market later this year.

 

Smartphone displays are made up of many individual picture elements or pixels.  3D effects are enhanced as the total number of pixels on a given display increases.   Pixel density is indicated in smartphone specifications and in the table below in pixels per inch (PPI).  This value depends upon the size of the phone's display in inches and the total number of pixels that the display is able to resolve along its horizontal and vertical axes.  The higher the display's pixel density, the sharper its image.  The sharper the display's image, the more realistic is the illusion of depth that the display is able to convey.

 

The table below lists the height, width and depth (in inches) of fully compatible smartphones that we've reviewed to date.  The table also shows the display size (in inches measured along the diagonal), display resolution (in pixels) and pixel density (in PPI) of each phone's display.   If you do not spot your phone in this list, the nearer the dimensions of your phone are to a device in this list, the surer you can be as to its ability to securely fit into the 3DVu viewer.  If your phone's pixel density is equal to or higher than those shown in the list, it should also be able to effectively display three dimensional effects.
