Planar Systems, Inc. of Beaverton, Ore. has a new stereo monitor that may find applications in medical technology, according to Advanced Imaging Magazine.
The potential of 3D displays to make complex medical analysis and imagery more effective remains almost boundless. As these clinical trials and other research continue, medical professionals will see more of the scientific proof they require before accepting new technology. – Barry Hochfelder, AIM
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.
