Toshiba Showcases Glasses-Free 3D LCD Technologies at SID 2011

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC)*, a committed industry leader that collaborates with customers to create breakthrough designs, will exhibit next-generation displays and technologies developed by Toshiba Mobile Display Co., Ltd. (TMD)** for mobile phones and portable electronics, automotive applications, industrial markets and 3D applications in booth #1119 at the 2011 Society for Information Display (SID) International Symposium, Seminar & Exhibition, May 17 to 19, 2011.
Featured developments in TAEC’s booth this year include two different 3D technology demonstrations, new displays for high-resolution handheld mobile applications, high-resolution and high-reliability automotive displays and industrial LCD displays with replaceable LED backlights capable of 100,000 hours MTBF(1).  Displays with Low Temperature Poly-Silicon (LTPS), Optically Compensated Bend (OCB), System-on-Glass (SOG), LED backlighting, and other advanced technologies can be viewed in five demonstration areas:  mobile, automotive, industrial, 3D, and SOG in-cell technology.

“We are excited to exhibit several new and innovative products and technologies aimed at mobile, automotive and industrial applications.  Our advancements in system-on-glass in-cell technology and our approaches to 3D will enable future growth in new markets and applications,” said Clayton Bond, senior vice president, Display Devices and Components Business Unit for TAEC.

3D Technology

TAEC will demonstrate two 3D technologies.  The first approach, Integral Imaging 3D, combines an ultra-high resolution display and a lenticular lens sheet to enable “Multi-view” natural viewing without 3D glasses, so the same image can be seen from multiple viewing points.  Integral Imaging will be shown in a 21.0-inch Wide-XGA (1280 x 800) and 12.1-inch 466×350 technology demonstration.  The second approach, Time Sequential, will be shown on two displays – a 3.0-inch Wide-QVGA (400 x 240) and an 8.0-inch Wide-VGA (800 x 480) 3D OCB panels – utilizing a backlight system incorporating a bi-directional lens sheet.  The displays synchronize LED switching with left- and right-eye images to achieve stereoscopic (twin-eye 3D) viewing without special glasses while maintaining a fast response time and a wide viewing angle.  This approach is 2D/3D switchable, and enables a thin, easy-to-assemble LCD panel utilizing its full native resolution without compromise.
