May 27, 2009 LG Display today announced it has developed a full HD 23-inch 3D LCD panel with twice the brightness of conventional 3D LCD panels. 3D LCDs apply time-sequential technologies so that the right and left eyes see different images, tricking the brain into seeing them as three-dimensional. In conventional 3D LCDs, the technologies are installed outside the panel or into the viewing glasses. Though the detail of the technologies has not been revealed, LG is reporting that the new 3D LCD embeds most of the 3D technologies directly into the panel, enabling 3D viewing with low-priced polarized glasses rather than expensive special viewing glasses.
