At CeBIT New Display Enables 3D without Special Glasses

A World First at CeBIT in the Major Trend of 3D: New Display from Sunny Ocean Studios Enables 3D without Special Glasses

SINGAPORE & HANNOVER, Germany --(Business Wire)-- Feb 02, 2010 The technology supplier Sunny Ocean Studios makes it possible to enjoy a 3D experience from 64 different perspectives for the first time without additional visual aids. The 27-inch monitor, whose upstream optical system enables “glasses free” 3D images, will celebrate its public premiere in Hannover.

In Singapore, Sunny Ocean Studios is currently developing the world’s first 3D cinema in which the audience will no longer require any special glasses. At CeBIT the company is presenting this technology for the cinema of the future in a mobile 27-inch format. Armin Grasnick, founder and managing director: “Whether it’s for private use or for commercial application – the current discussion surrounding 3D imagery shows that the future belongs to 3D capable systems. We are presenting a solution where the image appears to float spatially in front of the screen without the help of the usual aids like 3D glasses. By using 64 individual frames for the different perspectives in each 3D image for the first time, we can achieve a significantly improved 3D quality. We are even able to achieve this effect on standard monitors.”

In addition, the technology company will present its services and products for 3D projection without visual aids (“autostereoscopic”), for example, the refitting of current displays for glasses fee 3D display and the conversion of 2D images into 3D images. Grasnick: “We already possess the technology needed to quickly and inexpensively make large displays up to a size of 100-inch 3D capable.”

This year’s CeBIT (2nd– 6th March) is highlighting the area of 3D projection as a special innovation concept. Grasnick: “As a developer of 3D capable displays we are taking advantage of the excellent opportunity provided by our public premiere at CeBIT to make new customer contacts and to establish new sales networks in Europe.”

If they already have the technology for a 100" screen, then why are they showing off a 27" screen?

It looks like they use slanted vertical parallax barriers at the subpixel level, and much like Philips WOWvx which uses slanted lenticular arrays, each view probably has a fraction of the resolution of the full panel.

For example, 15 views on their custom 27" Apple iMac screen (2560 x 1440 pixels) would mean each view is effectively about 512 x 533 pixels (assuming 5:3 division), with considerably decreased brightneess - unless they developed some magical way to over come it, such as the obscure "Holographic Barrier" Mr. Grasnik mentions in the whitepaper below but which is not really described in his relevant patent applications.

For example, 15 views on their custom 27" Apple iMac screen (2560 x 1440 pixels) would mean each view is effectively about 170 x 96 pixels, with considerably decreased brightneess - unless they developed some magical way to over come it, such as the obscure "Holographic Barries" Mr. Grasnik mentions in the whitepaper below but which is not really described in his relevant patent applications.
Which is why they're probably showing off a 27" screen, rather than the 100" screen.

We are even able to achieve this effect on standard monitors.
I'll believe it when I see it. Sounds bogus to me.

Well, I believe the math should have been a bit different, since they probably interpolate between views just like WOWvx and the resulting resolution would be about 512x533 for each view. Still, quite far from full HD.

I don't really think it's bogus as effect but the practical usage is nonexistent... Marketing gimmicks or a nice thing to have at home which impress someone for a few minutes might be some but that's it.
I haven't bothered getting into this tech as with wowvx or zecotek but it seems to share some similar properties and probably tampers with the same laws of nature. So again: No thing for gaming or medias like movies.
