LG of Seoul, South Korea has released a 23 inch LCD monitor that can display 3D video and graphics at full HD resolution (we’re assuming this means 1080p). The system comes with shutter glasses that synchronize to how the screen flashes between views for the left and right eye, an effect called binocular disparity. Now it’s looking more and more likely that 3D technology will soon be a common modality to view volumetric, live images in radiology rooms and in the ORs.
The panel adopts the company’s proprietary technologies such as “high performance 3D exclusive controller” capable of processing more than twice as much image data as other HD 3D LCDs and “copper bus line” to improve on the resolution and picture quality. In addition, the panel is able to reproduce both 2D and 3D images, meaning that users can switch back and forth from 2D and 3D modes.
Although full HD 3D images have been developed for contents such as video games, movies and animations, 3D display products with full HD resolution were unavailable in the market. The commercial launch of LG Display’s full HD 3D LCD panel is expected to help to boost development of high resolution 3D contents while allowing users to view true-to-life 3D images.
