Dimension Technologies Inc. (DTI) has been awarded a contract from the United States Department of Energy to build the first prototypes of a new display featuring autostereoscopic 3D (no glasses) images with as much resolution as 2D images and dynamically switchable between 2D and 3D. This amazing patented technology is scalable and can be added to cell phones and the largest consumer TVs for the living room as well.
This technology boost will serve to strengthen products enabled with DTI 3D in all markets including our prime target verticals of gaming, dental, medical, and retail/POS. The Company intends to license this attractive superior 2D/3D technology.
Arnold Lagergren, CEO of DTI, states: “One of the major barriers to adapting autostereoscopic displays to home television, gaming, and many professional applications has been the resolution loss associated with 3D displays. Most consumers demand something close to full 1080p images when they look at their screens whether in 2D or 3D. DTI’s technology could provide such images and eliminate that barrier while eliminating the need for special glasses to see real depth in 3D images.”
“The word breakthrough is so overused today – but this is truly a breakthrough technology –it ranks with the light bulb, color TV, and high definition TV. The Company owns patents on this breakthrough technology and has applied for more,” states Arnold Lagergren. “The 3D technology developed under this program will be useful not only for science and engineering, but for a wide variety of applications including: gaming; point of sale advertising; medicine and dentistry; consumer gaming; and consumer TV“.
“This technology represents an opportunity to develop a new generation of products from handheld devices to desktop size up to digital signage and TV size” said Jesse Eichenlaub, CSO of DTI. “Previous wide angle autostereoscopic displays, of the type commonly used for trade show and point of sale advertising, greatly reduce the resolution of the image in order to create the 3D effect. For example, common multiview displays reduce the resolution of the 3D image by a factor of five or more in order to display the multiple perspective views used to create the autostereoscopic 3D images. By combining DTI’s technology with off-the-shelf LCD displays available today, this loss can be eliminated. This will allow 3D displays to be viewed without glasses and at a wide angle and in the high definition of the native LCD used to create them. Our technology also eliminates the visual artifacts called Moiré lines seen in other autostereoscopic displays, and is very efficient in the utilization of light.”
