LG intros D2000 glasses-free LCD with eye tracking

20-inch monitor offers 3D view from wide angle

LG today announced what it claims to be the world's first glasses-free 3D computer display with eye tracking. The 20-inch D2000 LCD combines cameras with the company's parallax barrier 3D displays. The technique allows not just glasses-free viewing, LG said, but wide viewing angles that aren't always the case.

Current glasses-free 3D technology usually constrains viewers to watch within a narrow viewing angle and be a close distance to the monitor in order to experience the 3D effect. The D2000 uses a special camera sensor attached to the LCD to detect changes in the user's eye position in real-time. The monitor then calculates the angle and position of the viewer and adjusts the displayed image for the optimal 3D effect. This gives the viewer much freer movement and the expanded viewing range.

LG has been adding to their portfolio of 3D TVs, laptops, projectors and smartphones. Last month, the company added the DM50D, a 3D-capable monitor with in-built TV tuner.

The D2000, branded as the DX2000, will be available in Korea later this month, and in late 2011 elsewhere. LG has not given out pricing.
