The 3D PluraView monitor family – Meeting the highest requirements for Geospatial applications
The reference for passive 3D stereo displays
Anyone who depends on optimal 3D-stereo visualization, dealing with professional geospatial software, needs an absolutely flicker-free and daylight-compatible stereo monitor on the desktop. The 3D PluraView monitor series is the professional solution from Schneider Digital that enables fatigue-free, stereoscopic work throughout the day.The passively polarized 3D PluraView monitors are the 3D-stereo monitor system with the highest user acceptance and user satisfaction of all 3D displays currently available on the market!
The 3D PluraView Stereo Monitor is the optimal solution for real 3D-stereo visualization in a wide variety of GEO / GIS areas, such as Photogrammetry, GIS & Mapping, LiDAR, 3D Scanning, for the oil & gas industry, BIM & 3D city modeling. Together with professional graphic cards, the PluraView is compatible as a plug & play system - without special graphics drivers - with stereo software applications from leading manufacturers - e.g. esri, Trimble-INPHO, Hexagon, Agisoft, DAT/EM, Terrasolid etc.

Established technology, perfected for professional work in 3D stereo
The 3D PluraView monitors are the successors to the PLANAR 'beam-splitter' monitor series manufactured by PLANAR until 2015. This stereo technology is based on two monitors, a semi-transparent mirror and the combination with extremely light, passively polarized stereo glasses. Since the introduction of the PLANAR monitors over 15 years ago, this principle has proven itself to be the qualitatively best 3D-stereo display for desktop workplaces.
With a 28-inch screen diagonal, 4K (UHD) resolution and up to 10-bit color depth (with AMD Radeon PRO graphics cards), the 28 “PluraView from Schneider-Digital is the current 3D-stereo reference for all geospatial IT applications.
As a technologically superior alternative to active LCD shutter glasses, which are no longer available from the previous main supplier NVIDIA, the 3D PluraView monitor will continue to function 'Plug & Play' with every 'NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro'-compatible software application. This is also the case for the current Windows 10 version (Build 2004), which no longer supports NVIDIA 3D Vision LCD shutter glasses for desktop monitors.
The new 3D PluraView monitor with its innovative beam-splitter technology offers the highest quality available for desktop stereoscopic displays.The 3D PluraView is therefore ideally suited for all major stereo-capable applications in the geospatial industy, for GIS, Photogrammetry, LiDAR and especially for 3D City Modeling and the creation of realistic, digital 3D 'twins'.Highlights
3D PluraView - Advantages & Benefits
Passive Stereo Monitors have the highest user acceptance of any 3D display technology available.
3D PluraView users can work in normal daylight office conditions.
The flicker-free, bright 3D-stereo display substantially increases user motivation and productivity.
More than 10 years of experience in professional data production operations prove quality and perfect usability.
The new 3D PluraView models with full 4K stereo resolution enable new applications in BIM, medical applications or Laser scanning.
NEW! VR PluraView with Head & Object Tracking now available!
3D PluraView compatible Geospatial software applications
3D PluraView monitors are predominantly used in graphics-intense Geospatial applications such as 3D City Modeling, GIS, BIM, Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing, LiDAR 3D-point cloud editing, oil and gas exploration and plays, geology, hydrology and hydraulic engineering, meteorology and weather modeling, geodata processing, data analytics and reporting, geo-CAD applications, geo-planning, land survey, cartography & data visualization, navigation & telematics, etc.
With currently over 2,000 monitor systems installed and more than 200 compatible 3D-Stereo software applications available, the 3D PluraView is the market leader and established reference for 3D visualization in professional Geospatial application areas:

Case Study Feuerwehr Hamburg
Extraordinary 3D stereo work makes construction sites “bomb-proof”
For optimum efficiency in wartime aerial photography interpretation, the ‘risk and unexploded ordnance survey department (GEKV)’ of the Hamburg Fire Brigades uses the 3D PluraView passive 3D stereo beam-splitter monitors from Schneider Digital.
- Remote sensing and surveillance of construction sites for unexploded ordnance from the Second World War, using historic airphotos and secondary sources
- Achieving the greatest possible level of safety against potential construction site dangers
- Professional analysis using 3D GIS software
- Faster photo interpretation processes, requests dealt with more quickly
The demands placed on 3D visualisation technology:
- Highly detailed, stereoscopic 3D representations of aerial photographs from WWII
- Optimum ergonomics to allow fatigue-free use over the entire working day
- Aerial photography interpretation on the screen in daylight conditions
- Compact form-factor for the desktop, ultra-robust, stable assembly
- Plug & Play system without the need for special software or hardware
- Fully compatible with GIS software applications
- Complete workplace solution with side monitors
