HDMI Requirement for 3D Display
To display WinAura 3D on a 3D-capable video monitor, we strongly recommend connecting the computer's HDMI port to the monitor's HDMI port. Not all computers have a HDMI port.
Using a USB-to-HDMI cable without a converter has not been found to work.
Using a USB-to-HDMI converter has the potential to deliver an acceptable image, but it is untested. We can't guarantee that it'll work yet.
Please note that WinAura 3D starts up in 2D mode, intended for a 2D monitor. To display 3D images once you've connected your computer to a 3D monitor, please press “Z”. The computer will then display two side-by-side images which become combined when the monitor is put into 3D mode. You will need to use passive 3D glasses to properly obtain a 3D image.
As of July 2013, their are two 3D cameras which can be used in WinAura 3D:
- Microsoft Kinect Camera - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/kinectforwindows/
- ASUS Xtion PRO LIVE - http://www.asus.com/Multimedia/Xtion_PRO_LIVE/
- Brands known to be compatible with the Microsoft Kinect Camera: Dell, Toshiba
- Brands known to be compatible with the ASUS Xtion PRO LIVE: Fujitsu, HP, Compaq
We are constantly updating our lists of compatible devices; the most up-to-date information can be found on this page.
Powered USB Hubs
Due to the large power requirements of many of devices needed for WinAura3D, we recommend that you use a powered USB Hub whenever you need more USB ports. We have also found situations in which the direct laptop ports were unable to deliver the necessary power, a problem we've solved with a powered USB hub.
