There are two different PlayMemories Home software versions:

  • PlayMemories Home for VAIO - This software is pre-installed on most newer VAIO computers.
  • Player Memories Home - This software is pre-installed or available for download on Sony Handycam® digital video cameras or Cyber-shot® digital still cameras.

The main difference between the two software packages is that the PlayMemories Home for VAIO contains the following extra 3D support features:

  • Adds the ability to play supported 3D video or image content recorded by a 3D Bloggie® camera, or other 3D camera, using the side-by-side method.
  • Allows supported 2D video or image content to be converted and played in 3D.
  • Allows supported content to be output in 3D to an external monitor using an HDMI connection.
  • Allows 3D playback using the VAIO 3D Filter feature (available on select VAIO Computers).
