Ver. 1.02


Advantages

Advantages

  • Create large stereoscopic images by using two commercial mini-projectors

  • Obtain twice the amount of light compared to conventional systems

  • Reduce cost, size, weight, noise and heat generation by half

Principle

Principle

  • Exploit the native polarization properties of LCD projectors to achieve near 100% optical efficiency

Polarization structure of lcd projector

Polarization structure of LCD projector

  • Liquid-crystal image generators create linearly-polarized images

  • In modern commercial LCD projectors, the green component is polarized perpendicularly to the blue and the red components

Prior art generation of orthogonal images

Prior-art generation of orthogonal images

  • Mount polarizers on both projection lenses

  • Polarizers are aligned at 45° to the polarization directions of the beam and at 90° to each other

  • Result: two orthogonal images with light intensity reduced by 50%

Viewing polarization rotated beams

Viewing polarization-rotated beams

  • If the green content of the stereo pair is switched, each eye sees the correct image

  • Switching can be done either by hardware, or by a simple preprocessing of the content

Manipulation of polarization

Manipulation of polarization

  • Polarization states can be manipulated with retardation films

  • Half-wavelength retardation films are used to rotate the state of polarization

  • Quarter-wavelength retardation films are used to convert linear polarization to circular polarization and vice-versa

Comments

Comments

  • Same method can be used to create circularly-polarized images

  • StereoBright does not offer any advantage when using DLP projectors, since their light is unpolarized

Summary

Summary

  • Smart utilization of native polarization properties of LCD projectors to achieve a stereoscopic image with nearly 100% optical efficiency

  • Allows the use of mini presentation projectors to create bright stereoscopic display

  • No extra cost and complexity
