CES 2011: The Latest 3D Innovation, Glasses-free 3D Display for Mobile

January 7th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

Last year’s CES was dominated by 3D, as a host of 3D TVs were launched to the public. CES 2011 doesn’t look like it will be anything different with a wide range of 3D products already unveiled.

Excitingly one of the 3D products LG have on display at their booth is a glasses free 3D display for use in mobile devices. At 4.3 inches, this glasses free 3D display sets the pace for mobile 3D displays and cements LG as a forward thinking and innovative manufacturer.

Comprising a WVGA touchscreen and 480×800 pixel resolution, the 4.3 inch 3D display offers the optimum screen size for watching 3D on a mobile device. Ideal for watching videos or playing games without the risk of eye strain from the immersive 3D technology that provides bright, flicker-free images.

Making 3D glasses a thing of the past, LG’s display uses an applied parallax barrier technology, which delivers a series of light-blocking slits attached to the front of the LCD panel. The slits ensure that the left and right eyes see different images, creating an illusion of depth and a convincing 3D effect.

Developed in partnership with LG Display, LG have also drastically reduced crosstalk. The new display has straighter, more upright barriers that are very precisely aligned to the LCD panel. This technological advance not only means smoother, brighter, crosstalk-free images, but also a much wider viewing angle than on previous parallax displays.
