In pursuit of the greater possibilities of LCD technology
In order to meet the more diversified demands for displays, Sharp is not stopping at improving visual quality,
but is challenging the boundaries of integrating displays into advanced systems and giving them more
advanced functions. We shall continue to pursue the possibilities of LCD technology by combining the
technology that we have accumulated over the years.

• The basic principle of the parallax barrier system used has been understood for some
time. It is achieved using a structure incorporating a conventional TFT-LCD and a

• The switching liquid crystal is used to implement the parallax barrier and control the
directions in which light leaves the display. This ensures that different patterns of light (Light cannot
