In addition, the Integral Imaging technology offers nine images with wide viewing angles, allowing more people to watch simultaneously (without glasses) three-dimensional images.
To learn about playing the right image, the TV detects before (at the request of the user’s remote) the position of the viewers faces.
Resolution is huge, even compared to HDTVs. We speak of 3.840 x 2.160 pixels. Apparently, why would you need such a resolution?
