Paper Abstract

Time multiplexed autostereoscopic displays are often associated with complex optics design and have not yet been made in a flat panel format. The reason is mainly because the high bandwidth image sources are not available as flat panel displays. The optical Wedge developed at Cambridge University compresses the optics into a single flat waveguide, which allows for a flat panel time multiplexed autostereoscopic display. By using an active shutter synchronized with a custom built high frame rate DLP light engine we suggest two approaches for creating a flat panel 3D display. The limitations on size are purely limited by the shutter size. However, we also suggest a solution where a small shutter can be used to create a large sized display.
