Acer announced the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs™ Edition laptop (CN715-73G), bringing eye-popping, glasses-free stereoscopic 3D to designers and developers. The mobile workstation supports creators with Acer SpatialLabs, a suite of optical, display and sensory technologies with real-time rendering capabilities to deliver a glasses-free stereoscopic 3D experience. It’s also backed by the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, featuring NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Laptop GPUs with exclusive driver technology that enhances creative apps for optimal levels of performance and reliability. A 15.6-inch version of the ConceptD 3 Ezel and a 16:10 version of the ConceptD 3 were also announced.
ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop has been equipped with up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Laptop GPU, up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TBs of NVMe PCIe SSD storage. All of this hardware powers a PANTONE®-validated UHD 4K display that boasts a wide range of color technologies to cover 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut and reach a Delta E<2 color accuracy rating, ensuring that what creators see on the stereoscopic 3D laptop’s screen is what they get.
Sitting above the screen is a set of stereo cameras that track eye positions and the movements of a user’s eyes and head in order to display images in stereoscopic 3D. This is achieved by projecting two slightly different images through an optical lens that has been bonded to the display’s panel, each refracted to a different eye. Real-time rendering technologies allow this process to take place immediately—if a user rotates their head, the stereoscopic 3D image will adjust as if the user was looking around it. Furthermore, the computer comes equipped with a suite of AI technologies that perform tasks like stereo image generation, allowing users to turn standard 2D content into stereoscopic 3D content.
Support for all major 3D file formats lets creators convert their 3D models into stereoscopic 3D simply by importing them into the SpatialLabs Model Viewer, where they can also adjust lighting, textures, and HDRI backgrounds to find optimal presentation settings. Additionally, SpatialLabs Model Viewer add-ons are currently available for eight 3D software suites, including Autodesk Fusion 360, Rhinoceros, and Zbrush, enabling models created within these applications to be exported to the SpatialLabs Model Viewer with a single click for review in stereoscopic 3D.
The laptop can also be used in tandem with an extended 2D screen, making it possible to create or edit content on a 2D monitor and then view any changes made in real-time in stereoscopic 3D on the SpatialLabs device. This speeds up the process of discovering design issues and drastically improves workflow: Product designers can use the SpatialLabs Model Viewer to get an idea of what the item they are designing will look like before investing the time and resources necessary to print or tool it. Furthermore, Acer’s proprietary solution SpatialLabs Go has been updated with AI technology that makes it possible to generate stereoscopic 3D content from most 2D content capable of being displayed in full-screen, such as photos, videos, simple games and even video conferences.
ConceptD 3 Ezel Convertible and 16:10 ConceptD 3 Laptops
Acer also expanded its ConceptD 3 line with multiple new models, such as a new 16-inch clamshell model (CN316-73G) featuring a 16:10 aspect ratio screen and a new 15.6-inch convertible model (CC315-73G) which includes up to a Wacom EMR pen. A ConceptD 3 Pro (CN316-73P) and ConceptD3 Ezel Pro (CC315-73P) are also available, both featuring up to an Intel® Core™ i7 processor capable of reaching 4.6 GHz and an NVIDIA T1200 Laptop GPU.
All of the new ConceptD 3 laptops come with a distinctively modern design, featuring a pristine white MAO (Micro-Arc Oxidation) coating that resists stains and abrasions to protect the device’s all-aluminum MgAl chassis. From there, a PANTONE®-Validated display with a Delta E<2 color-accuracy rating ensures that all the fine details look exactly like a creator wants them to.
