Paper Abstract

All 3D displays have the same intrinsic method to induce depth perception. They provide different images in the left and right eye of the observer to obtain the stereoscopic effect. The three most common solutions already available on the market are active glass, passive glass and auto-stereoscopic 3D displays. The three types of displays are based on different physical principle (polarization, time selection or spatial emission) and consequently require different measurement instruments and techniques. In the proposed paper, we present some of these solutions and the technical characteristics that can be obtained to compare the displays. We show in particular that local and global measurements can be made in the three cases to access to different characteristics. We also discuss the new technologies currently under development and their needs in terms of optical characterization.
