VeldhovenDimenco unveiled Dimenco Clear View (DCV) technology, taking glasses-free 3D displays to the next level. For the first time, people can experience 3D with the deepest black-levels, no brightness loss, widest viewing angle and lowest cross-talk, offering the ultimate glasses-free 3D display.

“Dimenco Clear View technology reflects how Dimenco is pushing the limits of innovation in the glasses-free 3D domain” said Bas Böggemann, COO of Dimenco. “The optimal 3D performance is based on the strong interaction between lens design, panel and manufacturing process. With the DCV technology, we have taken the 3D experience to the next level.”

Until now, 3D auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free) displays always had to compromise on brightness, contrast and viewing angle performance. The reason for this was the coupling of the lenticular lens to the LCD-panel that created a small loss of brightness and contrast, downgrades the black level and slightly reduces the cosmetic appearance of modern displays. Furthermore, traditional lenticular displays have a limited viewing angle in which 3D is perceived, and it suffers from a limited 3D experience due to optical crosstalk.

Dimenco Clear View technology solves these compromises via its unique lens design and manufacturing process. The optical stack has been optimized to limit internal reflections and is not affected by any form of diffusion resulting in the purest possible optical performance. By combining the DCV technology and Dimenco image processing, the smoothest cone transitions are achieved, resulting in the most immersive 3D experience in the market.

“Dimenco continuously supports us with improving our products and creating the most immersive 3D experience for our customers; Dimenco Clear View technology is another clear example of this,” says Wilfred De Man, general manager, Philips/MMD Monitors and Displays.

Dimenco Clear View technology will be demonstrated on several Dimenco displays at SID (June 5th – 7th 2012, Boston). The technology is ready for licensing, and 3D display products can be acquired via Dimenco.
