3D functionality for NUC8I7BE

I will possibly upgrade one of my other PCs with the new NUC817BE.

I searched for information on internet and found some sites with information.

One of these was this one: https://nucblog.net/2018/08/bean-canyon-nucs-officially-launched/ Bean Canyon NUCs Officially Launched – The NUC Blog

Here is stated that Intel had removed a 3D feature called Stero 3D.

There is a thread where this is discussed and some poeple are really unsatisfied with this?

How does this impact 3D functionalities when playing Blu-Ray 3D?

Can anyone explain this more extensively, preferably someone from Intel.

From Intel Tech Spec: "HDMI 2.0a is enabled by LSPCON (DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0a protocol converter); Stereo 3D (S3D) technology is not supported."

Hello Gunnar68

 

 

Thank you for joining the Intel® community.

 

 

Allow me to share with you that the Intel® NUC Kit NUC8i7BEH comes with Intel® Core™ i7-8559U Processor the according to the specifications it has the feature for Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology (Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology provides stereoscopic 3-D Blu-ray* playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI* 1.4 and premium audio).

 

 

I researching more about the Intel® NUC details for playing Blu-Ray 3D to assist you with your inquiry.

 

 

Hope this helps.

I just want to repeat what is stated in the Technical Specification for Bean Canyon NUC: "HDMI 2.0a is enabled by LSPCON (DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0a protocol converter); Stereo 3D (S3D) technology is not supported."

I have seen other specification for LSPCON circuit's and where it was stated that the circuit supported "Passthrough of Stereo 3D".

It seems that Intel for some reason (maybe because 3D has been drawn back by the Industry - no new TV sets support this function) does not support that in this LSPCON.

So the question still remains, if the Stereo 3D has been removed, which is the effect on playing 3D films?

Hello Gunnar68

 

 

Thank you for the information

 

.

 

Allow me to share the Intel® Graphics support for Stereo 3D (S3D) technology reference link (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030190/graphics-drivers.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030190/graphics-drivers.html)

 

We cannot comment specifically on what may have been lost with the removal of Stereo 3D, but we have seen no issue when testing 3D on the NUCs.

If Stereo 3D is not supported what is meant with "no issue when testing 3D on the NUCs".

Hello Gunnar68

 

 

The Intel® NUCs that we have tested have Intel® HD Graphics with Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology. The Intel® NUC has the processor Intel® Core™ i7-8559U with Intel® Iris™ Plus Graphics 655 that has the feature Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology.

The conclusion is anyway that Bean Canyon NUCs are not supporting Stereo 3D, which means that 3D films and Games does not work on these NUCs.

Worth to mention is that Stereo 3D works on Hades Canyon NUCs as the HDMI 2.0a is directly connected to the Vega Graphics circuit. On the other hand UHD Blu-ray is not supported, which it is on Bean Canyon :-).

Hello Gunnar68

 

 

Thank you for the information.

 

 

Could you provide me with some sample 3D Games for me to test it on 3D?

 

 

Allow me to share with you the following link for more details about Intel® InTru™ 3D Technology:

Shure!

Try this link on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO6dKPR4aC0 Michael Jackson - This Is It - 3D Extras SBS 1080p Full HD - YouTube

It's an good example of 3D effect.

My setup is a LG 3D Screen, passive glasses and a NUC8I7HVK and it works very well.

Provide you also with a link to Cyberlinks tool for checking if the PC meet the requirement for e.g. 3D Blu-ray:

It seems that you can not be 100% sure that the setup comply with the requirements, even if the program report so, which I experienced today.

I run the advisor on a setup with LG BP60NB10 + Intel NUC8I7HVK + LG TV Set and it reported that the setup complied. I have W10 v 1803 installed.

Then I tested with a 3D film, but got an error message, attached. I changed to a ASUS Mini PC UN68U, with the same result.

I use PwerDVD18.

I have sent a trouble report to LG Support...

Hi,W

No, I don't think we are done yet.

I am waiting for your report on testing with a 3D complaint Blu-ray Drive + disc.

The 3D video sample I sent you which worked, means that streaming 3D would work. But using a Blu-ray 3D could be another story.

So for the test setup a 3D Blu-ray drive is required. I recommend to run Cyberlink PowerDVD UHD Blu-ray adviser/Bluray 3D first to check the combo.

Is there an Intel policy issue here, to not run 3rd party SW?

If not, check that both required and recommended Pass.

If "Dual Video Hardware Decoding (GPU)" don't pass we have a problem and probably 3D Blu-ray will not work. Even it's stated recommended it must Pass to get 3D to work according to Cyberlink Support.

When I tested 3D compatibility for NUC8I7HVK I got non complaint for "Dual Video Hardware Decoding (GPU)" and 3D Blu-ray discs did not work.

So for NUC8I7HVK neither 3D Blu-ray and UHD Blu-ray discs will work, as the HDMI interface is connected to Vega Graphics, sad but it seems to be true.

Yes, the Stereo 3D (S3D) technology has been removed and it is not supported due to LSPCON converting from DP1.2 to HDMI 2.0 and S3D not enabled in this scenario, I would assume that when gaming the impact is lacking of the illusion of depth in a moving images, separately displaying two offset images to the right and left eye for example wont be available but I am not 100% sure about this behavior and I dont have a good way to test. I am checking and I will get back to you soon.

Thanks,

Hi Gunnar68,

Hi-Definition Blu-Ray is supported on NUC8i7BE but not if you are trying to do 3D.

For Bean Canyon 3D Blu-Ray discs that are Stereo 3D are not supported as indicated by the TPS.

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i3BE_NUC8i5BE_NUC8i7...

This would imply that Blu-Ray optical drive playback with Cyberlin*k PowerDVD, UHD Blu-Ray/Blu-Ray 3D is not supported.

Hi,

Has this been confirmed by test?

If so, it's a pity and this thread can be closed.

But there is an exception, 3D streaming seems to be working.

Hi Bjorn,

This has been confirmed by the product development team, I personally haven't tested this configuration and cannot give you my own feedback.

Thanks for your report about 3D streaming working.

Ok, then I knows.

Then we can close this thread.

Thank's for help!
