Ostendo Crvd Curved Displays: Wrap Around Gaming

 |  |  |  |  |  April 6, 2010


I’m just getting used to the massive 2560 pixel wide display on my new 27-inch iMac, and then I had to see this gaming rig.

The guys over at Ostendo are making these new CRVD displays, which not only offer a whopping 2880 by 900 pixel resolution, but are curved to engulf you in the action with a 90-degree field of vision. And when combined with ATI’s Eyefinity multi-display tech, you can set up multiple displays side-by-side to create a truly immersive gaming experience.

Each CRVD has a 43″ diagonal screen with an insane 32:10 widescreen ratio, backed by a bright, yet compact DLP rear projection system.

Somehow I overlooked these bad boys back when I was trolling the aisles at the CES show back in January, but from the looks of these sample video clips, I’m not sure how I could have.

…and that’s just a single monitor. How about three?

So here’s the bad news. At $6499 (USD), you’ll need to take out a second mortgage to buy just one of these, and you’d probably have to sell a kidney on the black market to fund a triple-display rig like the one shown in the video.
