This is our third report from CeBIT 2010 featuring a 3D display technology that does not require glasses. Why are the new 2010 3D TVs from Sony, Samsung and others, require us to wear 3D shutter glasses again? To me it looks like there is enough auto-stereoscopic display technology out there that big consumer electronics companies could put their muscle behind now.
Singapore based Sunny Ocean offers a 3D Display that offers 3D experience from 64 perspectives in a room. This feature makes this 3D display usable by several people in the room at the same time.
The company shows a 27-inch 3D display at the CeBIT 2010. We will try to get more technical details on how this auto-stereoscopic display works.
Update: I got more technical details on the Sunny Ocean 3D display. The system uses special optics and a software algorithm to display 3D in 64 perspectives. The "inter-images" needed are the result of an automatic calculation (non real-time). Using Sunny Ocean's own algorithm the images are computed into a screen image and presented on the display. The "up-stream" optic in front of the display projects defined image parts in 64 angles, which can be described as one viewing zone. Between the intersection of two viewing zones, the images are "jumping" from 1 to 64 (pseudoscopic inver-sion). In the white areas in between the pseudoscopic inversion areas, the projections are overlapping, which could cause a blurry pseudoscopic vision. But thanks to the 64 views, an observer will have an excellent 3D impression in almost all parts of the entire viewing area.
In 2010 Sunny Ocean plans to release the 27-inch 3D Display. 100-inch sizes are technically possible today.
