Sharp has developed a 3.4-inch 3D touchscreen display with the industry’s highest brightness and the ability to switch between 2D and 3D modes. Sharp’s new LCD features 480×854 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio and 500cd/m2 brightness. Sharp has also developed non-touchscreen version.
The 3D LCD developed by Sharp at this time significantly improves image quality by achieving both high brightness and low crosstalk thanks to advances in CG-Silicon technology and optimization of the parallax barrier. Advances in CG-Silicon technology have shrunk the wiring width within the LCD panel, allowing more light to pass and doubling the brightness (to 500 cd/m2, the industry’s highest) compared to the conventional model. In addition, optimizing the parallax barrier design has increased the efficiency of light, thereby dramatically reducing crosstalk.
