Plasma display panels (PDP) are now a commonly used display technology for both commercial information display purposes and consumer television applications. Despite the widespread deployment of these displays, it was not commonly known whether these displays could be used successfully for time-sequential stereoscopic 3D visualization (i.e. using LCS 3D glasses). We therefore conducted a study to test a wide range of PDPs for stereoscopic compatibility. This paper reports on the testing of 14 consumer plasma displays. Each display was tested to establish whether the display synchronized with the incoming video signal, whether there was electronic crosstalk between alternate fields or frames, the maximum frequency at which the display would work, the time delay between the incoming video signal and the displayed images, whether the display de-interlaced interlaced video sources in a 3D compatible way, and the amount of phosphor decay exhibited by the display. The overall results show that plasma displays are not ideal for use with timesequential stereo. While roughly half of the plasma displays tested do support the time-sequential 3D technique, all of the tested displays had a maximum display frequency of 60Hz and most had long phosphor persistence which produces a lot of stereoscopic crosstalk.
