Patent No. 8,189,129

Issued: May 29, 2012
Filed: November 6, 2009

Inventors: Eichenlaub; Jesse B. (Penfield, NY)
Assignee: Dimension Technologies, Inc. (Rochester, NY) - http://www.dti3d.com/ 


The backlight system of the invention creates illumination behind a liquid crystal or other transparent display. In one mode of operation it produces a series of precise, thin slanted lines with dark space in between which are used to make multiple perspective views, displayed simultaneously on the LCD, visible from a series of horizontally spaced viewing zones spaced in front of the display. In another mode of operation, it produces even diffuse illumination similar to that generated by conventional backlights, allowing the LCD to display conventional 2D images.
