The main problem 3D manufactures are having to overcome with consumers is the need for users to wear glasses to view 3D display and TV’s. Many users just don’t want to wear glasses while enjoying a film or playing a computer game.Toshiba’s new naked-eye 3D television systems hope to resolve this issue.
Presented at CEDEC 2010 Toshiba’s new Naked-Eye Technology enables 3D images to be viewed from 9 distinct viewing angles without the need for the user to wear glasses.
Naked-Eye display is achieved by using a lenticular lens sheet on a high-definition LCD panel. This method uses images from nine directions to create one 3D picture. Technically, this is called a nine-parallax 3D image, and there are nine pixels underneath each lens. This creates a 3D perspective by enabling each pixel to be observed through the lens from a different direction.
