StereoMirror™ Monitor

Planar’s SD product line, featuring innovative StereoMirror™ technology, provides the highest quality stereoscopic image available in a desktop monitor.
The SD line features a wide-format 24" with WUXGA (1.920 x 1.200) resolution. This display havs the resolution and brightness you’ve come to expect from Planar. StereoMirror technology delivers stunning images for use in applications such as satellite/aerial photogrammetry; medical imaging; computational chemistry; complex modeling visualization and computer gaming.

  • A simple design that integrates two LCD monitors into a stereoscopic display
  • It uses a beamsplitter at the bisecting angle between the two monitors to fuse the right and left images

The axis of polarization is horizontal in the light path seen in transmission, but is vertical in the reflected light path

  • The new SD2420W is a 24-inch wide-format stereo monitor with WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution
  • This new model has significant improvement brightness (200 cd/m2), higher stereo contrast (200: measured) and reduced stereo crosstalk (<0.2%)
Stereo displays is the next generation in stereoscopic monitors.Many stereoscopic 3D monitors have drawbacks that leave users dissatisfied due to poor image quality, discomfort and complex operation. Planar has addressed these problems with an innovative type of stereo display making use of innovative StereoMirror™ technology and high quality Planar monitors to give viewers the ultimate in stereo viewing pleasure.

StereoMirror™ technology enables an unprecedented level of stereo viewing comfort. Flicker-free operation allows extended stereo use with no discomfort. The monitor can be used simultaneously by multiple users – sitting or standing - in geospatial intelligence, photogrammetry, molecular modelling, medical 3D renderings or 3D gaming applications. There is no restrictive “sweet spot” for viewing and there is no need to work in a dimly- lit environment.
The monitor provides sufficient brightness to be used in a normal office setting.

Planar’s SD monitors are addressed simply via any of several existing stereo modes in Windows, DirectX or OpenGL applications and with a number of commercially available graphics cards. Left eye/right eye information is presented to the correct monitor directly via a DVI interface with no user-supplied hardware or processing. Using the output from the appropriate graphics card, the Planar SD line of monitors includes all the hardware you need to view stereo.

StereoMirror™ technology makes use of off-the-shelf display components. In addition to two AMLCD monitors, a simple stand, half-silvered mirror, hardware for performing a video mirror flip in one channel, and passive polarising glasses are utilized for stereo viewing. Conversion to 2D viewing only requires turning off one monitor or lifting the mirror to the upright position.

stereo_mirror technische Erklärung

Planar's StereoMirror monitor consists of two active matrix LCD (AMLCD) units oriented at a 110-degree angle and bisected by a passive beamsplitter mirror.
When stereo pair images from the two monitors are viewed through crossed-polarizing the result is a single, fused stereoscopic image.
A passive beamsplitter mirror bisects the angle formed between the two monitors.
One side of the mirror has a reflective coating, and the side has an antireflective coating which minimizes secondary reflections.
