This is how it should be built: - The screen should the phi ratio, 32.6 by 52 inch maybe. - You should be able to watch TV on it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:07, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

there are also other companies showing their 3D products e.g. at CeBIT in Hanover (Germany) these days (by the way: IFA took place in Berlin, not in Frankfurt) but all of them have disadvantages which are not (or hardly) usable for 3D homeentertainment: These displays use either a sigle view (with or without headtracking) or multiview (up to 9 views like Philips does) systems. Both of them have disadvantages:

- single view: only one single person can watch

- multiview: since this system uses 8 or even 9 views the effective resolution of these displays is 8 or 9 times smaller than the real display resolution (using diagonal barrier or lenses the resolution is lowerd in both directions - horizontal AND vertical)! There is another problem with these multiview systems: to generate the 8/9 views you need a very fast processing (like "Black Betty") or you use something like Philips does using a real picture/videostream an an additional deepmap - with these informations one can calculate the 3D scene and generate the 8/9 views

In my oppinion a 3D homecinema is possible and even usable (today) with less money and better quality: take a dual projector setup (DLP XGA or better), connect them to a PC with a dualhead graphicscard, use polarisers (linear or circular) in front of each projector an a silverscreen. Depending on the projectors the price for such a setup is between $10k and $50k (this one has 2k resolution). The PC needed for this setup needs to have a dualcore processor (3Ghz od AMd X2 4800+) if you want to play 3D HDV content.
