How The 3D Glass-Free Display Technology is Gaining Traction


How the 3D Glass-Free Display Technology is Gaining Traction? 

When we go to the movie theater to watch a 3D movie, a 3D spectacle is given to us so we can watch and enjoy the movie to the fullest. What if we can enjoy the movie without the 3D glass? Is that possible at all? 

You’d be delighted to hear that it’s perfectly possible and works are currently going on in this direction. In this article, I’ll discuss some of the achievements of the glass-free 3D display segment.

Nintendo 3DS
A Nintendo 3DS costs you around $200, but what the device gives you is totally worth the money that you are paying. Imagine Super Mario is coming out of your screen. Cool, isn’t it? What makes it even more sought after is you don’t need 3D glasses.

Not only Super Mario but you’d be able to play plenty other cool games. Some of those games are Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Metroid, etc. Buying the Nintendo 3DS hand grip device lets you enjoy all those games. What’s more is the face detection technology, embedded with the device.

The face-tracking technology helps you have an immersive experience. The device allows users to take 3D photos and render 3D videos, which is the bonus.

Autostereoscopic screen
The concept that underlies the autostereoscopic screen is called parallax.  The parallax barrier is a device, placed in front of liquid crystal display, which results in the viewer seeing a stereoscopic image.

The stereoscopic screen ensures two eyes see two different images. When 3D glasses are used, the polarized light causes an image to split up. An autostereoscopic screen, with the help of the parallax barrier, does the same without requiring the glasses. There are some downsides of the 3D stereoscopic display.

The downsides include reduction of the display resolution. Due to this, it becomes incredibly difficult to view a full HD screen. The autostereoscopic screen is it requires multiple perspectives, whereas 3D glasses require only two perspectives. This is another limitation of the autostereoscopic screen.

3D conversion
It might appear like an off-topic because glass-free 3D display and conversion to the 3D format seem difficult to relate to. In reality, however, the two can very well relate to each other. Just as 2D content can be converted to the 3D format, the same way, 3D with glasses can be converted to 3D without glasses in real time.

Some 3D companies are bringing automated solutions, which eliminate the need for human intervention. The solution comes in the form of a device, which you need to plug into your 3D set-top box. The only bottleneck is the conversion is currently restricted to the large screen. Bringing it to the small screen appears difficult.

4K monitor
4K and 5K Ultra-HD (UHD) monitors offer standout picture quality without the viewers to having to wear 3D glasses. Cutting edge 4K and 5K monitors support nearly 28 viewing angles. Because of that, the viewer can even take a stroll around the circumference of the monitor, and can still see all the 3D effects quite clearly.

The differences in the image quality can be spotted by even the most inept eyes. When someone is watching a movie with lots of cool cgi effects, he can see each and every character clearly and distinctly. An ordinary television cannot adequately show the differences in depth levels. The placement of every character and object within the screen can be accurately identified.

The Smartphone vertical
For a long time, the glass free Smartphone has been a concept. It is finally implemented. The VKWorld Discovery S1 is the first of its kind. The Smartphone comes with a 5.5-inch screen with 720 x 1280 resolution and 267 pixels-per-inch.

Virtual reality on the Smart platform is nothing new. Even 2K Smartphones can allow for the rendering of 3D virtual if you integrate it with the Google Cardboard. A highly equipped state-of-the-art Smartphone doesn’t require Google Cardboard, yet it enables its user to enjoy virtual reality.

The future 
There’s hardly any doubt that the glass-free 3D display technology still has miles to travel before we can call it success. However, the discussion in this article shows it has somehow managed to pad out an acceptance already. In the future, we’ll see many more innovative changes in this vertical.
