Zecotek Shows A Glasses-Free 3D Display With Split Screen

Zecotek Shows A Glasses-Free 3D Display With Split Screen
 
 

Now here's something you haven't seen before. It's a 3D TV that can display 3D pictures without the need for glasses - and it can do two simultaneous pictures in real-time.

The technology is being pitched to industry insiders, as well as air traffic control systems. Yes, Zecotek is so confident in its autostereoscopic 3D display that it thinks it could replace the current monitors used in air traffic control towers.

"There is widespread disappointment in current 3D offerings, in particular due to the need for glasses, and our glasses-free system offers a unique alternative. Both the split screen and ATC capabilities provide for new important applications. Our goal is to get our system to market as soon as possible," said Dr. AF Zerrouk, the man at the head of Zecotek.

The content would likely need to be designed specifically for the display. It's not like you could hook up two PS3s and start playing two games side-by-side.

However, if the new autostereoscopic technology becomes more widespread, content availability would be much more universal.

Problems plague the glasses-free 3D market, though, because displays require viewers to look at them at a perfectly head-on position. Additionally, the 3D presentation is not nearly as vivid as it can be with the aid of 3D glasses.

Nevertheless, it's encouraging to see so many companies working on advancing the autostereoscopic 3D standard. Only good things can come from this.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
