DA: What is the biggest technical obstacle to glasses-free 3D and how is Dimenco taking on the challenge?
Resolution, Cone Transitions, Content
Glasses-free 3D displays have had 3 main obstacles to overcome.
1) Resolution: By applying a lenticular layer to generate multiple views on top of a LCD panel you lose a significant amount of resolution. The result was that with "traditional" FHD panels (1920 by 1080) you experienced, depending on the lens design and image processing, a SD image quality in 3D. With the introduction of QFHD panels (3840 by 2560) it is possible to overcome this problem as you can realize with the right lens design and image processing a FHD 3D picture. This FHD 3D image is impressive to watch and provide the "right" consumer experience.
