LG showcases ‘Dual View’ TV
LG has shown off a brand new TV technology at IFA 2011 whereby two viewers can watch two seperate images on the same screen. To do so viewers wear glasses that give each a different view, and work on the basic principles of passive 3D glasses.

So how does it work? There are two different sets of glasses which work on the basic principles of 3D glasses. However while 3D glasses are normally polarised for each individual eye, in this case you get two left eyes and two right eyes. This allows two people wearing the different glasses to view two different pictures on the same screen.
The advantage is, for example, when playing a computer game two players can both use the same screen but you wouldn’t be able to see what your opponent is up to. Even though you would be looking at the same screen, you’d be seeing a completely different view.
It was being demonstrated on LG’s new flagship TV the LG LW980T but in theory the technology should work on any passive screen TV, as long as you have the dual view glasses. There’s no reason the dual view glasses should be any more expensive than LG’s regular cheap passive 3D glasses.
It sounds like it would be ideal for games but currently you couldn’t, for example, watch two completely different programmes as the audio wouldn’t add up.
