autostereoscopy

Displaying stereo 3D images without requiring the viewer to wear glasses. Also called "auto 3D" or "glasses-free 3D." Although the Nintendo 3DS game console has been very successful, the distance from the screen to the user is short, and the viewing angle is narrow (see parallax 3D). When creating autostereoscopic TVs with large screens, the wider viewing angle presents many challenges. One solution is to provide numerous viewing angles per frame of video. Stream TV Networks provides glasses-free 3D for TV (see Ultra-D). See lenticular 3D, parallax 3D and 3D visualization.

While it does seem like the viewing angles would be quite limited with this approach, and not ideal for multiple viewers, Apple's patent claims the display combined with 3D imaging technology would be able to track the movements of multiple viewers and manipulate the deflected image to keep it crispy and autostereoscopic for all.
On the second day the emphasis switches to the display space, with presentations on direct-write holograms, projection systems and autostereoscopic displays, before concluding with a series of presentations on next-generation developments including thermo-plastic photosensitive materials, RFID-hologram combinations, phone displays, collectors for solar energy and explosive holograms.
Both phones have a 3.8-inch autostereoscopic display similar to that on the upcoming Nintendo 3DS portable game console, with a resolution of 800x480 pixels.
Hungarian company Holografika, led by Tibor Balogh, has become a world leader in the design and production of autostereoscopic 3D displays, leading to Balogh being nominated for a World Technology Award.
Presumably, the 3D displays on these products will all be autostereoscopic (not requiring 3D-glasses), similar to the Fujifilm Real 3D W3 digital camera's display.
Holo FX Inc, based in Toronto, Canada, has developed a system for the projection of moving 3D images, which despite the company's name, is not holographic but uses a plastic diffraction grating laminated to glass or plastic to deliver the left eye & right eye view to create the autostereoscopic view.
This news is certainly interesting, as the Japanese company has recently been turning heads with its autostereoscopic 3D display technology, which is seen in the Nintendo 3DS, and will soon be seen in the company's upcoming smartphone.
NewSight GmbH, the German R&D subsidiary of 3D specialist NewSight Corporation, and Sax3D, of Chemnitz, Germany, have launched a new autostereoscopic 3D image display screen which combines NewSight's 3D imaging software and projector technology with Sax3D's Holographic Optical Projection Screen (HOPS[R]).
4 -- Plenty of manufacturers have come up with autostereoscopic displays in the recent past (Toshiba, Hitachi, and Sharp), so when Sharp, the developer of the Nintendo 3DS' display and plenty of 3D HD cameras, announces that it will launch an autostereoscopic smartphone sometime this year, it comes as no surprise.
The second POC technology for which the company is seeking commercialisation partners is its 3-D Real-Time Video Display System--an autostereoscopic video digital display system that does not require special goggles or glasses to view the 3-D images.
Richmond Holographic Studios demonstrated prototypes of their realtime 3D autostereoscopic colour display, working on an otherwise standard laptop computer screen.
CMO was founded by Phillips and Bjelkhagen and it has concentrated on development work on holographic emulsions, HOEs, full colour display holography and autostereoscopic 3D screens, primarily funded through contract research.
