LCD manufacturer LG Display has unveiled its new polarized three-dimensional television technology to 250 participants at a launch press conference in Beijing, China.
The new technology is dubbed FPR for Film Patterned Retarder, which is said to be vastly superior to previous 3D liquid crystal display (LCD) systems. The current system uses a frame sequential method and the display is viewed using liquid crystal shutter glasses (SG). The new technology uses a polarized film substrate in the panel and is viewed using polarized film glasses. Using film instead of glass as a substrate for the patterned retarder panel also cuts the costs of the system considerably.
