Kjell Brunnström: Presented “Cross-Talk Measurements of Shutter-Glasses 3D Displays” Thursday (5/19) / 1:30 PM - 2:50 PM / Concourse Hall


Crosstalk is probably one of the main perceptual factors contributing to perceived image quality and visual comfort. The Video Quality Experts Group (VQEG) within their 3D video quality project is specifying a practical measurement procedure that will produce consistent results across laboratories. This paper is part of that effort. Two different method of measuring cross talk on shutter glasses stereo displays have been studied. One is based on time average luminance measurements and the other on temporal measurements. The results show that crosstalk is roughly 0.5% but that there are differences in the crosstalk between the two eyes in the shutter glasses.

News from SID Conference and exhibition. Kjell Brunnström, Acreo, was attending the event and here are some of his high lights from the 3D TV display industry:

The competition between the TV manufacturers developing 3D TV with active glasses vs those developing 3D TVs with passive glasses is currently very tough. The main advantage with active is that you see a full frame each time and passive that you can use lighter and more comfortable glasses, but you get lower resolution. Until now!!

The sensation this year was that Samsung has teamed up with RealD to present a 3DTV with an active polarizer in the screen, so you can use passive glasses with no loss of resolution. That was, I believe, hard on the rest of the 3DTV competitors.

LC-Tec (Borlänge) seems to be in the right time when they now presented such a component, based on their patent pending technology PolarSpeed, for use on displays (

Prizes were given at the conference. The unusual thing was that that the Gold awards were not given to the traditional display companies. Instead Apple received two Gold awards. iPhone 4’s retina display got the Display of the year award and iPad got the Display application of year award. The Display component of the year was awarded to E-ink for their color e-paper, that can enable e-readers to support color.
