Bright and Vivid 3D.
Enjoy bright and vivid images with minimal crosstalk.

1. Three Technological Innovations Provide Outstanding Brightness

Compared with normal 2D displays, conventional 3D displays suffer from lower screen luminosity, with the image appearing dark and faded. AQUOS Quattron 3D, however, combines four proprietary technologies for an overall light utilization efficiency 1.8 times *3 that of the previous models, delivering an exceptionally bright 3D image.

1. Four Technological Innovations Provide Outstanding Brightness

1-1. 4-Color Technology

Images are given a wider Color range and higher precision with "4-Color x circuitry technology," a combination of 4-Color panel technology panel technology, which overturns the conventional notion that Color displays should employ 3 Colors (red, green and blue), and TV circuitry technology. Not only standard broadcasts, but also 3D images can be enjoyed with maximum sharpness and vividness.

1-1. 4-Color Technology

1-2. UV2A Technology

Photo-alignment technology at the picometer level (one picometer is one trillionth of a meter) makes it possible to achieve intense "blacker blacks" and "whiter whites," which was difficult with conventional methods. A faster response time has been achieved as well. Furthermore, improved light utilization efficiency makes it possible to achieve all this with lower power consumption.

1-2. UV2A Technology

1-3. FRED technology (high-speed LCD drive technology for 3D displays)

In the past, 3D images have been achieved through high-speed liquid crystal driving using two signal lines, but with rapid-response UV2A technology *9, successful high-speed liquid crystal driving can be achieved with a single signal line. This enables minimal wiring and component count inside the LCD panel and improved light efficiency, helping to achieve a bright image and low power

2. A Major Reduction in Crosstalk Makes for a Top-quality 3D Image

In 3D displays, separate images intended for the left eye and right eye are displayed alternately to create the perception of a 3D image. This system, however, often generates crosstalk, in which the images for the left eye and right eye overlap. AQUOS Quattron 3D models utilize LCD panels with superb high-speed response and high-precision lighting control of backlights to achieve 3D images with greatly reduced crosstalk.

3. Achievement of a Crisp, Vivid Image

In addition to the challenge of reducing crosstalk *2, 3D displays are prone to a decline in the vividness of the image. With AQUOS Quattron 3D, a crisp, vivid image is achieved through an uncompromising emphasis on high contrast and accurate Color reproduction, made possible with the 4-Color technology *5 and UV2A technology *4.

Viewers can enjoy an unprecedented degree of 3D realism by watching through special "Active Shutter Glasses," which use rapid on/off switching of LCD shutters synchronized with rapid alternation of high-definition images for the left and right eye.

Precautions when viewing stereoscopic 3D video

  • Avoid viewing stereoscopic 3D video if you are in poor health or feeling unwell.
  • Immediately stop viewing stereoscopic 3D video if you experience discomfort.
  • The images’ sense of three-dimensionality may vary from person to person.

"TV contrast ratio" refers to the degree of contrast a TV is capable of displaying (a measure of the difference of light between the maximum luminosity when signals are all white and the minimum luminosity when signals are all black). The "5,000,000:1" ratio is when the AV position is set to "dynamic."
