A display system requiring no special glasses is a useful technology for 3D images. The parallax barrier display system has superior characteristics, such as having a planar screen and a thin panel. However, conventional multi-view parallax barrier display system has disadvantages such that the resolution of each stereoscopic image is reduced only in the horizontal dimension. This paper describes the development of two models for displaying 4-views images. One is the 4-views display with a parallax polarizer barrier and the special backlight. In this display, the viewing points of parallax images can be arranged arbitrarily. The other is the stereoscopic display with the same 4-views using the combination of a parallax polarizer slit and cylindrical lenses. It is possible that the image resolution of each view is reduced both horizontally and vertically using this combination. These stereoscopic 3D displays can avoid the horizontal resolution problem of conventional system.
