Abstract

A display system that simultaneously displays two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) images using a pinhole array on a liquid crystal (LC) panel is proposed. Using the transparent structure of the LC panel, the system can generate or eliminate pinholes electrically and can display a 3D image in a selectable specific area of the display panel, while 2D images are displayed on the rest of the screen. An analysis showing the advantages and limitations of the proposed system is provided. Finally, the proposed principle is proven by experimental results.
