Technological advancement has resulted in the autostereoscopy, a method of displaying stereoscopic images into 3D images without any glasses on part of the viewer. Manufacturers are developing autostereoscopy 3D display from prototypes to commercial products. Various companies are also developing methods to display 3D movies at home without the need for 3D glasses. It also allows customers to customize depth-effect as per the comfort. Although companies have already started providing automultiscopic displays, allowing glass-free 3D TVs, still the content being produced is very limited. Hence manufacturers are also focusing on creating a method or a tool that can convert the existing content into 3D content for automultiscopic display. Manufacturers are currently working two approaches known as multiple views and eye-tracking, this will help wider viewing angle without the need for the display to sense viewer’s eyes. However, the cost is still the biggest concern in the glass-free HD 3D display market.
According to the latest report by Fact.MR, the global glass free HD 3D display market is anticipated to witness robust growth. The market is projected to register 15.0% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2022. Companies have started developing glasses-free 3D displays by using a range of various technologies. With viewers dislike for special glasses in existing 3D TVs, the glass-free 3D display holds great opportunities. Providing user-friendly and easy viewing, manufacturers are focusing on improving depth effects to offer better view without 3D glasses.
