Dolby Teams with Philips for Glasses-Free 3D

Posted Wed Apr 18, 2012 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The tech offers 26 different viewing angles and can be adjusted to fit your distance from the TV.

Glasses-free 3D is a technology that has a great deal of potential, though no one has perfected it yet. Dolby and Philips are hoping to take it a step further with their new prototype that combines a 4K display with a sheet of undulated plastic that allows for 3D to be viewed from 26 different viewing angles.

Hands on experiences seem positive so far. "Viewing angles were particularly impressive: even from far off to the side, the 3D effect was still present, writes David Pierce of The Verge. "The picture was so crisp and clean that it almost took a minute to realize we were looking at 3D footage."
