Based on JDI's 17-inch 8K LCD, the light field display reproduces the reflected light from an object that corresponds to the actual visible position (for both eyes), creating natural-looking images.
The two partners have collaborated to develop a new system that converts multiple light field images arranged in a tiled pattern into a compressed pixel array format suitable for the light field display in real time. With this system, the companies claim it is possible to reproduce an 8K light field video by using a practical playback device. Using the latest digitizing and computer graphics production technologies, combined with digital content compressed with newly-created non-linear algorithms, the system provides unprecedented representation of natural images, they say.
Japan Display and NHK Media Technology plan to start mass production of this product during their common FY2019 period, April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020.
