First reports praise Dolby's glasses-free 3D

26 Apr 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

Dolby had brought a prototype display, based on their previously-announced glasses-free 3D technology, to the NAB 2012 convention. The first reports praise Dolby’s efforts and says that 3D pictures look great and that the viewing angles are “particularly impressive”.

Dolby’s 3D technology receives praise

The Verge got some hands-on time with Dolby’s new glasses-free 3D technology that has been developed together with Philips – and they were impressed. The technology was showcased at the NAB 2012 convention with material from Captain America and the Art of Flight.

The first hands-on impressions with Dolby’s glasses-free 3D technology are positive

The Verge says that “the picture was so crisp and clean that it almost took a minute to realize we were looking at 3D footage” and that “viewing angles were particularly impressive: even from far off to the side, the 3D effect was still present”. The Verge even says that “based on what we saw the technology is very much ready for public consumption”.

The glasses-free 3D technology requires a very high-resolution display panel and Dolby used a 4K panel. The technology boasts 26 different viewing angles - more than today’s glasses-free 3D technology. However, the high resolution demands will make it harder to adopt on smaller devices.

Dolby is working with Philips to bring TVs to the market but the companies are currently waiting for high-resolution display panel costs to fall. A 2012 introduction seems unlikely at this point.
