The use of an LCD equipped with lenticular lenses is an attractive route to achieve an autostereoscopic multi-view 3D display without losing brightness. However, such a display suffers from a low spatial resolution since the pixels are divided over various views. To overcome this problem we developed switchable displays, using LC-filled switchable lenticulars. In this way it is possible to have a high-brightness 3D display capable to regain the full native 2D resolution of the underlying LCD. We showed the feasibility of LC-filled switchable lenticulars in several applications. For applications in which it is advantageous to be able to display 3D and 2D on the same screen, we made a prototype having a matrix electrode structure. A problem with LC-filled lenses is that in the 2D state there is a residual lens effect at oblique angles. This effect and a possible solution are discussed as well.
