  • Patent number: 5831765
    Abstract: The 2-D/3-D compatible type image display according to the present invention is constructed by arranging a liquid crystal panel which is a display panel, a dispersed type liquid crystal panel which is a diffusing effect on/off panel, a light separating means, a backlight which is a plane light source, so as to be nearer to an observer in this order. It is possible by processing the image signal supplied to the liquid crystal panel to form a first group of pixels lined in longitudinal direction of a picture and a second group of pixels lined in the same direction of the picture alternately formed in horizontal direction, and to make the first group of pixels and the second group of pixels have different observing points respectively as left eye pixels and right eye pixels (when 3-D images are displayed), or to make the first group of pixels and the second group of pixels have the same observing points with each other (when 2-D images are displayed).

  • Patent number: 5640273
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a three-dimensional display panel capable of viewing a three-dimensional image without using special glasses. The three-dimensional display panel comprises an image display panel having a column of right eye pixels arranged with predetermined spacing in the longitudinal direction on a screen and a column of left eye pixels arranged with predetermined spacing in the longitudinal direction on the screen and so adapted that the column of right eye pixels and the column of left eye pixels are arranged alternately in close proximity to each other in the horizontal direction on the screen and are shifted from each other in the longitudinal direction on the screen to ensure a region where means for switching the respective pixels is formed, and image separating means for separating light from the right eye pixels and light from the left eye pixels to be respectively incident on the right eye and the left eye of a viewer.

  • Patent number: 5493351
    Abstract: A liquid crystal projector includes a light source, a color filter for adding color projection image, a liquid crystal panel for forming a projection image on it, a projection lens and an optical unit located between the color filter and the liquid crystal panel for optically coupling the color filter and the liquid crystal panel. The color filter is separately located from the liquid crystal, and therefore the increase in temperature on the color filter because of absorbing the light from the light source has less effect on the liquid crystal panel.
