Hitachi Electronics Japan has unveiled a new kind of 3D display for mobile phones which promises to change the future of 3D handheld devices as we know today.
The newer display uses Liquid Crystal lens system to achieve a greater native resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (high definition) in a smaller size screen measuring 4.5 inches in size. At present the highest resolution supported by any mobile display is 960 x 640 pixels offered by the Apple’s retina display.
Once this display goes mainstream it will be the world’s first true 720p resolution supporting display for handheld devices.
Along with this, the new display also promises much higher display brightness as compared to what is offered by 3D display at present.
Presently, the 3D displays use video overlay technology to project 3D imagery which projects images for the right and the left eye alternately, known as the parallax barrier method, thereby reducing the overall brightness.
With the use of the Liquid Crystal Lens technology, Hitachi’s new displays produce 3D imagery by adding feature focusing for both the left and the right eye at the same time thereby achieving better and brighter image reproduction.
The display is manufactured utilising the In Plane Switching technology that offer better contrast and colour reproduction while lessening the colour loss at various angles due to the vertical alignment of the pixels.
Even in the normal 2D mode, the new display will help realise better resolution in a smaller sized screen. Also, with the use of the Liquid Crystal lens technology the display helps reduce crosstalk that sometimes appears in 3D displays while being used in 2D mode.
