MacBook Pro Retina 3D: Glasses Free 3D for Mac
During the Flat Panel Display show 2012 held in Tokyo, Dimenco (Veldhoven, The Netherlands) exhibited a fully functional MacBook Pro Retina 3D. The display makes use of the lenticular technology, which permanently attaches a lens on top of the screen with a thickness less than 3mm. This technology allows the viewer to perceive perfect stereoscopic 3D images without the use of any clumsy eyewear.
No-Glasses 3D on a MacBook Pro
The lenticular technology in the MacBook Pro Retina 3D is optimized for a single person with the use of face tracking. The onboard camera tracks the movement of the user and adjusts the 3D image to the position of the viewer for a continuous and optimal 3D experience. Normally glasses-free 3D displays use a technique called “Multiview”. This technique allows multiple users to view 3D at the same time with a reduced resolution.
The MacBook Pro Retina 3D, however, suffers much less from the resolution loss due to its single person optimization with face tracking. Combined with a Retina Display (2880 x 1800 pixels) the screen holds up to modern day standards and delivers a truly exciting 3D performance! This does not mean the display can’t handle 2D content: Within the blink of an eye the screen switches back to its native 2D mode.
As well as other Dimenco glasses-free 3D displays, the MacBook Pro Retina 3D has a superb 3D viewing angle of 140°, which ensures an optimal viewing experience for the user.
