CeBIT, the annual IT and computer fair held in Hanover, Germany, is being held this year on 2nd March to 6th March 2010.
What caught my eye was the announcement by Sunny Oceans, a company based in Singapore, that they will be at CeBIT showing a 27-inch auto-stereoscopic 3D display with “64 possible viewing angles”.
The main benefit of auto-stereoscopic displays is that you don’t need to wear special 3D glasses to see the effect. However, most glasses-free displays suffer from having few optimal viewing angles, usually less than a dozen. The new display uses, “64 individual frames for the different perspectives in each 3D image”, and claims, “significantly improved 3D quality”.
Apparently, Sunny Oceans are also, “currently developing the world’s first 3D cinema in which the audience will no longer require any special glasses”.

This is a computer monitor, not a 3D-TV, although the line between the two is becoming increasingly blurred!
Hannover is sometimes spelled Hanover.
