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. As of 2013, Stream TV Networks' technology has the potential to provide glasses-free 3D for universal TV viewing (see Ultra-D). See lenticular 3D, parallax 3D and 3D visualization.

Stereo Processing Suite Pro, in combination with 2D to 3D Suite, also enables conversion for glasses-free 3D displays, allowing users to render the same material both for stereo 3D and autostereo 3D.
A few years ago, the autostereo prototypes at CES had a single tiny sweet spot --they had footprints on the floor to tell you where to stand.
The LCD is selectable between 2D image, (left / right) also a 2D mix of the left and right, sometimes called 50-50 overlay by stereographers and finally, an autostereo 3D version.
The quality of the autostereo mode is very good, but with some caveats in my opinion.
Among the first will be autostereo 3-D TVs, just now hitting stores in Japan, and Nintendo's 3DS handheld games console, due for release worldwide early next year.
But developments in research labs may bring autostereo 3-D without trade-offs.

Autostereo (glasses-free) displays restrict users, forcing them to position their head in a specific "sweet spot" with no room for movement over extended periods of time while delivering only half or less of the display resolution to each eye.
