StereoGraphics Corp. has just launched two new 3D displays using its glasses-free SynthaGram technology. SynthaGram uses lenticular technology to create ‘realistic’ 3D still and moving images. The top of the range SynthaGram 222 offers ‘phenomenal’ 3840 x 2400 pixel resolution—approaching ‘photographic-quality’ realism.
SynthaGram works by projecting nine separate perspectives on the surface of the screen. The process was originally invented in 1908 and is considered to be a precursor of holography. A refinement of the original technique involves ‘corduroy-like vertical lenticles that refract only in the horizontal direction.’
StereoGraphics also supplies content-creation tools including plug-ins for 3D Studio Max. The Synthagram 222 retails at $17,995. Another model sports a 42" display suitable for glasses-free 3D demonstrations in tradeshows. More from www.stereographics.com.
