It's 3D ... but pretty small

Samsung has just presented what they call the first OLED 3D screen.  It's only 4.3 inches, and hopefully it will scale upwards as quickly as CPUs scale downwards.  Get a peek at DigiTimes before they consign the article to their archives.

"South Korea's Samsung SDI is showing a 3D active matrix (AM) OLED (organic light-emitting diode)

display, which it claims is the world's first, at San Francisco's Society for Information Display

(SID) show, which runs from June 4 to June 9.

The 4.3-inch prototype provides the world's highest resolution, WQVGA(480×272), in terms of 3D images,

the company said. The new product is also much faster in displaying 3D images than existing LCD-based

3D displays by adopting AM OLEDs whose response time is 1,000 times faster than that of TFT LCDs, the

company added.

Samsung SDI emphasized that by adopting a new technology called Time Division Parallax Barrier Method,

the 4.3-inch prototype can realize the same level of resolution even when users convert 2D images into

3D, while existing LCD-based 3D displays decrease the resolution by half during the conversion. "
