PolarScreens is developing a new 3D display technology capable of displaying full HD resolution in each eye without the need for glasses. The technology combines a regular backlight, a 120Hz 3D LCD panel, a vertical Patterned active shutter panel and a head tracking system. The technology relies on a 12-sub-pixel wide alternated pattern encoded in the stereo image to follow the head movement. Alternatively for a passive 3D display, the barrier is made of vertical strip Polarizer Film. This can be applied to any full resolution polarized display like iZ3D, Perceiva, or active retarder 3D display. The end result is a full resolution autostereoscopic display with complete head movement freedom. There are no mechanical moving part (like lenticular) or extra active components to steer the correct L/R image to the user's eyes. The new display has the capacity of displaying 2D/3D information on a pixel per pixel base so there is no need for full screen or windowed 2D/3D switchable apparatus.
