Sony announces the Spatial Reality Display (SR Display)

Sony has announced that it has started to ship its Spatial Reality Display (SR Display). This goundbreaking display is claimed to bring displayed objects to life, offering “an entirely new medium and experience for designers and creators everywhere”. These displays make use of Sony’s award-winning Eye-Sensing Light Field Display (ELFD) technology to present a 3D optical experience that is viewable to the naked eye. In other words it is a 3D display that doesn’t require the viewer to don special spectacles or an HMD.

Three main technologies come into play to create the SR Display as follows:

  • High-speed Vision Sensor – The SR Display is based an innovative high-speed vision sensor which follows exact eye position in space, on vertical, horizontal and depth axes simultaneously. The display monitors eye movement down to the millisecond, while rendering the image instantaneously, based on the location and position of the viewer’s eyes. This allows creators to interact with their designs in a highly-realistic virtual, 3D environment, from any angle without glasses.3
  • Real-time Rendering Algorithm – Additionally, the SR Display leverages an original processing algorithm to display content in real-time. This allows the stereoscopic image to appear as smooth as real life, even if the viewer moves around.
  • Micro Optical Lens – The micro optical lens is positioned precisely over the stunning 15.6 inches (diag.) LCD display. This lens divides the image into the left and right eyes allowing for stereoscopic viewing with just the naked eye.
