JDI Announces Development of 5.5-inch Next-Generation Glasses-free
3D Movie Display
(Joint development between Japan Display Inc. and NHK Media Technology, Inc.)

Concept name: LF-MIC

August 1, 2018 (Tokyo Japan) - Japan Display Inc. (JDI) and NHK Media Technology, Inc. (NHK-MT) today announced a joint development project from which they have developed a 5.5-inch "Light Field Display"* which can realize natural-looking images in next-generation 3D video.

JDI has already developed "Light Field* Display" in 17-inch 8K LCD. This time, JDI has succeeded in developing a compact 5.5-inch size display, aiming to install a "Light Field Display" into IoT devices. JDI and NHK-MT have collaborated to provide the most life-like 3D images and video by using their respective technologies.

* Light Field Display
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. A "Light Field Display" simulates this infinite light concept and enables stereoscopic vision by reproducing light emitted in many different directions.

[JDI Future Trip Project]
Commercialization of "5G" will be started in 2020 and all devices surrounding people will be connected to the internet. JDI recently established a new corporate philosophy -- "With fresh perspectives and advancing technologies, we work constantly to realize a world that is inspiring and free of stres" -- as well as set up a new department (April 2018) to promote marketing and innovation, so that we are promoting "kotozukuri" (value creation) by utilizing JDI's #1 market share in small- and medium-size LCD displays, JDI's technological strength. JDI will create new future experiences within our "JDI Future Trip Project"
