3M demonstrates autostereoscopic display technology
3M has demonstrated its field sequential 3D optical film for handheld devices in Korea in the hope of drumming up business with manufacturers Samsung and LG. The device enables auto-stereoscopic viewing for mobile displays.
The company announced the technology last week and its intention to display it to the public at the annual Korea Electronics Show in Seoul which opened its doors today.
The company’s 3D optical film can be integrated into the backlight module of any display that operates at 100Hz or 120Hz and requires one LCD panel. Other than this, no special display technology is required.
The standard optical film stack is replaced with a reflective film, custom light guide and 3D film. By using directional backlight technology, left and right images are focused sequentially into the viewer’s eyes—enabling a full resolution display of the panel.
However, E&T Magazine has learned that the technology has already been incorporated into Fuji Film’s Real 3D camera’s display screen.
