Frontline Technology: Evolving Technologies for LCD-Based 3-D Entertainment
Two technologies using polarized glasses with retarders to create home-based 3-D display imagery are presented. The leading 3-D technology on the market today is glasses-based, and the author proposes that polarizer-glasses-based technology, from a viewer-friendly point of view, will lead the premium 3-D market in the near future.

Frontline Technology: Advanced Methods for Field-Sequential-Color LCDs with Associated Power Reduction Advantages
Using stencil-field-sequential-color methods with field rates as low as 120 Hz in conjunction with local-color backlight dimming can effectively suppress color break-up. With the addition of a color-filterless LCD with an intelligent LED backlight and a non-polarized LC cell, optical throughput can be increased by a factor of 10, while at the same time requiring a lower material cost/count, resulting in an environmentally friendly display.art6 By Han-Ping D.
