A research team led by Samsung Electronics has developed a high-resolution dual capacity display that allows 3-D images to be viewed on a flat- panel display without special filter glasses. Samsung has already built a 17-inch monitor prototype of the 3D display, which uses binocular disparity and time sequential “lens plus barrier” systems. It plans to complete development soon on a 19-inch commercial monitor. The new 3D display will hit the market in 2009 when new demand for a wide range of IT-related applications such as online games, e-shopping and 3D Web content will be ready.

The new 3D display will hit the market in 2009 when new demand for a wide range of IT-related applications such as online games, e-shopping and 3D Web content will be ready. The display could also fuel demand from the TV segment by providing a full resolution on a par with regular displays. That would allowing consumers to view local 3D imaging without wearing special glasses.
