A novel design of an autostereoscopic display system with full resolution, low crosstalk, and weak Moiré pattern is presented. The system involves the usage of an LED backlight array and a liquid crystal display (LCD) panel, in conjunction with a Fresnel lens array, to form a 3D optical image system. The finer temporal synchronization is made possible with a dynamic synchronized backlight, so that the scanning of the LCD is in phase with the backlight array. The systematic optimization presents a full HD, or even an ultra HD, display for a single left or right channel. The achieved minimum systematic crosstalk is 2.64%, a sufficiently low value reported so far with an autostereoscopic system.
