Ortus shows 4.8-inch 1080p 3D screen

Ortus Technology on Friday showed off the world's smallest truly HD 3D-capable display. At 4.8 inches and 1080p, the screen has a seemingly "pixel-free" 458 pixels per inch in 2D like an earlier screen but now has the option of 3D. A circular polarizer film known as Xpol can show separate pictures for the left and right eyes on alternating lines of the screen.

The display uses a hyper amorphous silicon LCD to get the sheer pixel density, which reduces the gap between individual pixels and lets Ortus fit more pixels in a given space. Its Arisawa-made film carries a sacrifice in halving the vertical resolution, though at 1920x540 would still make it sharper than most smartphones.

Ortus planned for the display to be used most in 3D cameras and camcorders similar to the JVC GS-TD1, where it can be used for a live preview that's both real 3D and closer to the sharpness of the actual image. Production could come in the "near future" depending on customers; no customers were mentioned, but JVC is theoretically an option. [via DigInfo]
