Abstract:

Third Dimension Technologies proposes a truly innovative combination of the very latest state-of-the-art developments in optics and electronics to produce a true 3D display that approaches the limits of what the human eye can resolve. A proprietary optics tiling technology allows complete modularity and scalability of the display. For an HPO (horizontal parallax only, three-dimensional in the plane of eye separation) panel the requirements for a 50 cm (20-inch) high-resolution color display would be an effective 120 Mpixels per 3D image. That is, 1600 x 1200 resolution with a 60 degree FOV, one-degree resolution, each pixel in color. This is more than three orders of magnitude down from the true holographic HPO display requirements, but would provide resolution close to the limits of human perception. The display would be readily scalable from a few cm to 100 cm or larger. This provides visual data at densities very close to the highest resolution the human eye can perceive. The display is fully adaptable to both HPO and full parallax (both horizontal and vertical).
