Announced at IFA 2023 in Berlin, Germany, Lenovo have unveiled their new ‘ThinkVision 27 3D” monitor, a 27″ sized display aimed at professional content creators who require immersive 3D visualization, including for 3D graphic design, games and videos. The screen offers a glasses-free visual experience, seamlessly supporting 2D and 3C content. We had chance earlier this year to test and use products from the Acer SpatialLabs range which offered 15.6″ sized screens with this kind of technology. We were impressed by the 3D effect and user experience, but the Lenovo screen will now offer this kind of technology in a normal monitor-sized form factor.
As Lenovo put it, the new screen is designed for “more immersive creation, connection, and collaboration”. The ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor can help elevate productivity by reducing the need for additional computing power for 3D rendering, while giving a consistent user experience across both 2D and 3D modes. Whether you’re creating content, meeting remotely with in-person realism, engaging in interactive education or training, or just want an impressive 3D video or gaming experience, the new monitor can meet your needs nicely.
To make this glasses-free 3D experience possible the screen has a pair of integrated eye-tracking cameras, while the screens switchable lenticular lenses help deliver a natural 3D experience to the user. The monitor projects two independent images to the user’s eyes, so that each eye sees the subject from a slightly different angle. This process delivers crisp stereo vision and depth perception in a natural and efficient stereoscopic visualization. The FOV is listed as 40 degrees, while the viewing distance is listed as 60 – 100cm.
3D Explorer Software
Combined with its 3D Explorer software, the new monitor forms a comprehensive ecosystem for 3D creation and consumption. The solution offers an easy platform for users to access all their 3D apps, together with the capability to optimize work and comfort, while enhancing control and efficiency. The 3D Explorer platform arms creators with useful tools such as a 3D player for viewing videos and files with 3D effects, support for design and productivity software, and an SDK for developers to build 3D applications. New features will continue to upgrade over time to enhance and extend the 3D experience, pushing the boundaries of 3D digital interaction while providing a gateway into a vibrant and expanding 3D ecosystem.
Lenovo ThinkVision 27 3D Specs
Spec wise the screen is 27″ in size, built around an IPS-type technology panel with a 3-side borderless design. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution (in 2D, leading to dual 1920 x 2160 in 3D mode), 1000:1 contrast ratio, 310 nits brightness, 178/178 viewing angles and with a wide colour gamut which offers 99% DCI-P3 and 99% AdobeRGB coverage. This provides support for common wide gamut colour spaces used in the professional market, and apparently the screen has been factory calibrated for dE < 2 in both of these colour spaces. This is a 60Hz only screen, so not aimed at gaming at this stage.
Connectivity includes 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.1 and 1x USB type-C docking (with 100W power delivery and DP Alt mode) and modular camera support. There are also 4x USB data ports, an audio output, RJ45 Ethernet connection and integrated speakers offered.
Pricing and Availability
This kind of innovative professional technology doesn’t come cheap of course, with the ThinkVision 27 3D expected to retail at €2999, with release date listed for February 2024.
