It's been a while.

It's been a while since I've checked on this blog. Sorry that many of the links in the blog posts are now down. The links go to companies I worked for in the past that no longer exist.

I now work for GSE Audio Visual Inc., a nationwide audio visual rental company.

The Future of Autostereoscopic/Auto-Multiscopic Technology.

Autostereoscopic 3D is the technology that lets you see 3D content on a TV without having to wear any glasses. The technology that does this is achieved by placing a lenticular overlay over an LCD/LED HDTV.

Here's some pictures of the Windows login screen on a 42" Toshiba LCD with a  lenticular screen over it.

To achieve the best resolution on lenticular autostereoscopic displays, the monitors are 1080p. The lenticular overlay cuts the resolution in half since it sends a different picture to each of your two eyes, so the 3D image you are viewing is 960x540.

So now what now... 4K!

4K monitors have just hit the U.S. market *(Dec. 2012). LG 84LM9600 and Sony XBR-84X900 both have 84" 4K monitors, and 2013 will undoubtedly see more 4K monitors hit the market.

4K monitors have a resolution of 3840x2160, so if a lenticular screen was used as an overlay for auto-stereoscopic content, you would be viewing the 3D images at 1080p. At this resolution the 3D would look incredible. No doubt, 4K is the future of autosteroscopic monitor technology.
