Paper Abstract

The 3D-2D convertibility is essential for the penetration of the 3D display into the current 2D display market and various methods were proposed to realize it. In this paper, a thin size 3D-2D convertible display using a pinhole array on a polarizer is proposed. The thickness of the proposed system can be below one centimeter. Additionally, the use of a pinhole array on a polarizer enhances the light efficiency of the proposed system in the 2D mode by more than ten times of the 3D mode. This is also essential since the 3D mode is an additional function for a 3D-2D convertible system. As a result, the 2D image quality of the proposed system can be compatible with the existing 2D displays for most aspects. The method is proven by experimental results.
