In this paper we describe the design of a lenticular based 2D/3D display for mobile applications. This display combines look-around capability with good 3D resolution. In order to allow high resolution datagraphic applications we have developed a concept based on actively switched lenses. A very noticeable problem for such displays is the occurrence of dark bands. We will show that, despite slanting the lenticular and defocusing the lens, banding becomes unacceptable when the display is viewed from an angle. As a solution, we introduce fractional viewing systems to reduce the banding intensity by almost two orders of magnitude. The resulting 3D display can be viewed from any horizontal direction without banding.
