The image conversion technologies from 2D images into 3D images with the `Modified Time Difference' method are proposed. These technologies allow to convert automatic and real-time ordinary 2D images into binocular parallax 3D images according to the detected movements of objects in the images. We integrated circuits such as a movement detector, a delay time controller and a delay direction controller into a single LSI chip to make a 2D/3D conversion board compact. We put this conversion board into a television set to introduce a new type of 3D consumer television with which we all can enjoy converted 3D images originally provided by TVs, VCRs and the like. Vertical frequency of this 3D television is 120 Hz and twice as fast as the ordinary television for providing flickerless 3D image.
