Gartner Glossary


Three-dimensional liquid crystal display (3D LCD) technology enables users to view 3D images either with 3D glasses (stereoscopic LCDs) or without 3D glasses (autostereoscopic LCDs). For smaller screen sizes (typically up to 10 inches), directional backlight 3D is a cost-effective technology that uses the LCD’s backlight to change the viewing fields for the left and right eyes sequentially, thereby creating image depth.
