Glasses-free 3D expands up to 28 viewpoints
Technology company Dimenco is demonstrating its new 23-inch 3D gaming monitor at the SID show in Boston. The display, using Dimenco Dynamic View, shows off a glasses-free 3D image, last seen being used by Nissho for a 52-inch screen about a year ago. The patent-pending technology is claimed to allow for up to 28 different viewpoints of the screen without any extra eyewear instead of a single fixed point for viewing as in typical stereoscopic 3D screens.
The unnamed monitor offers three different modes for viewing, using something called an LC-lens-switch. Stereo-mode gives a high-resolution image to a single user sitting directly in front of the screen, and is potentially capable of supporting NVIDIA's 3D Vision tech. Multi-view mode uses an integrated Dimenco Premium Rendering Core to issue a lower resolution image to 28 viewpoints, aimed towards people wanting to watch 3D movies with their friends or a group of people. If there is no need for the 3D capability, it can be switched off for a 1080p HD experience.
Dimenco will be showing the display off at the same time as its 56-inch 4K 3D screen which it previously showed off at NAB, as a collaboration with Philips and Dolby.
