Nvidia announces 3D Vision E3 footage deal

The E3 Expo, the world's biggest trade show for the computer and video games industry, is nearly upon us once again - and for those who can't make the trip to Los Angeles, Nvidia has some good news: footage from the event will be made available in 3D.

Thanks to a partnership with GamerLive.TV, those with the appropriate hardware - in this case, a 3D Vision certified monitor, an Nvidia GeForce graphics chip, and those daft shutter glasses that make you look like a bit of a fool - will be able to watch the happenings in glorious, Technicolour 3D from the comfort of their homes.

The plan is for GamerLive.TV to upload more than 50 high-resolution videos from the event, including game launches, booth tours, 3D game captures - which should be interesting - and interviews with the likes of Activision, Capcom, Disney, Electronic Arts, Sega, THQ, and Ubisoft. There'll also be envy-making footage from the parties for which the show is justifiably infamous.

The deal with GamerLive.TV is Nvidia's latest attempt to push its 3D Vision technology into the consciousness of the mainstream gaming consumer. Between its deal with YouTube for 3D Vision support, and comments from Andrew Fear about the company's commitment to the technology, it's clear that Nvidia's 3D Vision is here to stay.

The videos will be uploaded to GamerLive.TV's YouTube channel, and also showcased on Nvidia's own 3DVisionLive.com site - part of the company's attempts to make the site the most popular destination for 3D content on the web.

E3 runs from the 7th to the 9th of June, at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
