Crystal Display Systems LTD (CDS) has launched the new 3D transparent LCD displays. Transparent LCDs usually need a high amount of backlight which in many cases has posed many issues and hurdles for many customers in design and project applications. However with this new opportunity for backlighting the transparent LCD displays, by using a high brightness LCD display at the rear of the transparent, these issues are eliminated. 

CDS’ ClearVue3DP technology is constructed with a high brightness LCD display which has matched polarisers to the transparent LCD so they work as a pair, creating a 3D effect, creating a whole new transparent experience. The technology is available in landscape or portrait solutions with no need for additional software and no glass needed. 

Until now the solution has been sold in component format (two panels and two driver kits) for the customers to design and integrate their side. However, after customer feedback and intensive R&D from CDS they are now offering two brand new options for the 3DP.

An open framed solution whereby the high brightness LCD panel is built into an open framed solution and the transparent LCD panel has the AD board built into the aluminium frame. This eases integration for customers. As well as this the two panels can be built into a showcase to deliver an end solution to consumers where they have a plug and play turnkey solution with no design or integration needed.

The displays are manufactured within a showcase box much like the range of transparent LCD ClearVue showcases. The 3DP showcases feature extra LED lighting between the two panels and inputs for the two panels so content can be updated easily.

The 75" component format style is the most popular so far with keen interest for the smaller sizes in showcase coming through more recently.
