SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Strengthening its commitment to innovative technologies for industrial and high-end monitor applications, NEC Electronics America announced to the Americas that samples of NEC LCD Technologies’ 3.1-inch-diagonal three-dimensional (3D) polysilicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) module would be provided for the ‘MOBILE3DTV’ terminal prototype being displayed at Mobile World Congress 2009 (MWC2009).

The 3D LCD module has been adopted for the MOBILE3DTV terminal prototype because of its wide viewing areas, excellent 3D picture quality for bare-eyes viewing and high-performance display, which features wide quarter video graphics array (WQVGA) resolution and NEC LCD Technologies’ unique horizontal double-density pixel (HDDP) system. The MOBILE3DTV prototype with NEC’s 3.1-inch 3D LCD module is on display in the NEC booth (Hall 8, Booth 8A 125) at MWC2009, the world’s largest mobile technologies-related event, in Barcelona, Spain February 16-19.

MOBILE3DTV is one of the projects funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013) in the context of its Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) “Cooperation” theme. The three-year project began in January 2008 and aims to demonstrate the feasibility of mobile 3D TV broadcasting. The MOBILE3DTV terminal prototype is being developed by a project consortium partner, MM Solutions AD, and also will be displayed in the NEC booth at MWC2009 to demonstrate real-time decoding and displaying of 3D video content. NEC Electronics America will also showcase the 3.1-inch 3D module at the 2009 SID International Symposium, May 31-June 5, at the San Antonio Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Looking forward, NEC LCD Technologies will continue to promote research and development in pursuit of practical uses and mass production of 3D LCDs.
