A polarizer parallax barrier 3D display with high brightness, resolution and low crosstalk is proposed in this paper. The 3D display includes a 2D display panel, a polarizer film array, and a polarizer parallax barrier. The 2D display panel and the polarizer film array provide two parallax images in orthogonal polarization directions. The polarizer parallax barrier is covered with striped polarizers. Parallax images are modulated by the polarizer parallax barrier, and 3D images are displayed. A prototype of the proposed 3D display is developed and it has higher brightness and resolution than the 3D display based on conventional parallax barriers. Using a particular algorithm for synthetic images, the crosstalk is limited in a low level. Experiments are carried out, and good results finally verify the feasibility of the proposed method.
