May 19, 2017 (Tokyo, Japan) - Japan Display Inc. (JDI) and NHK Media Technology, Inc. (NHK-MT) today announced their collaborative research and development to introduce a next-generation 17.0-inch Light Field* Display.

Through this collaborative research, they developed the 17.0-inch Light Field Display based on an 8K LCD created with JDI's proprietary high-definition technology, combining it with NHK Media Technology's unprecedented high-definition, next-generation 3D image processing, resulting in a display that is able to express extremely realistic images.
The newly-developed display features an ultra-wide viewing angle, wider than conventional light field displays. Without any special glasses, it is possible to view an image from any position, as in the real world.

JDI and NHK-MT intend to continue their collaborative work in new technological research and development, striving to offer new display imaging experiences.

The 17.0-inch Light Field Display will be demonstrated in JDI's booth #917 at The Society of Information Display (SID) "Display Week", at the Los Angeles Convention Center, May 23 - May 25, 2017, in Los Angeles, California, USA.

*What is a "Light Field"
In the real world, light travels in an infinite variety of directions, and we recognize our three-dimensional world by the way in which we see this light. "Light Field" simulates this infinite light concept and enables stereoscopic vision by reproducing light emitted in many different directions.
