Toshiba Develops 21-inch Autostereoscopic

Toshiba Mobile Display Co., Ltd. has developed a 21-inch autostereoscopic high-definition display for use in 3D monitors that enables the user to enjoy 3D images without the need for special glasses.

To date most 3D products have used special glasses to separate a picture into two images: one for the left eye and the other for the right eye. But the market has strongly desired a more versatile and glasses-free approach that could be used anywhere. This new product employs an integral imaging system (a "light field" display) to reproduce a real object as a 3D image that can be viewed without glasses over a wide range of viewing angles. Therefore, the display is suitable for 3D monitors used for advertisements and entertainment appliances.


  • 3-D method: Integral imaging system with 9-parallax design
  • Screen size (diagonal): 21-inch/53.3 cm
  • Number of 3D pixels: 1,280 (horizontal) x 800 (vertical) / WXGA
  • 3D viewing zone (typical): ±15 degrees (horizontal)
  • Surface intensity (typical): 480 cd/m2
