What makes Sony’s breakthrough Spatial Reality Display work?

The Spatial Reality Display does not require any virtual reality glasses or a headset, yet claims to give a 3D Image Quality.

Owing to the rapid growth of technological advancement, no company is leaving scope for lagging behind. Sony is among those companies that are changing the way we think and is constantly progressing towards building innovations one after the other.

Quite recently, the Japanese multinational conglomerate – Sony – announced a groundbreaking new product – a compatible Spatial Reality Display. Spatial Reality Display is made with the Sony’s award-winning Eye Sensing Light Field Display (ELFD) technology and comes without a headset and a virtual reality glass.

This device is aimed towards the 3D content creation businesses professionals including – animators, filmmakers, architects, automotive product designers and AR/VR creators, that would ease their life. By enabling these creators to adjust the settings and view according to their need like – test object positioning, lighting and check the camera blocking angle, they can preview their work before finalizing it.

The Spatial Reality Display has an in-built high-speed eye-sensing vision sensor, with a viewing angle of 25 degrees from left and right, 20 degrees up and 40 degrees down and a viewing distance of 30 centimetres to 75 centimetres.

The Spatial Reality comes with a 15.6 inches 4K LCD display with a panel resolution of 3,840 pixels x 2,160 pixels. The display comes with a Micro-Optical lens for viewing the stereoscopic images in a real-life like images. The display comes with approx. 100% of Adobe RGB in colour gamut with 6500K colour temperature and comes with a 1400:1 contrast ratio.

The display unit comes with a 5.5W speaker (1.5 W + 1.5 W + 2.5 W). It comes with 1 HDMI port, 1 USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port and a DC IN: 12V 2.0A power port.

Sony claims that Spatial Reality Display would bring an extraordinary experience for the users. And this Extraordinary 3D Image Quality is made possible through using three primary technologies:

High-speed vision sensor: this helps in following exact eye position on vertical, horizontal, space and depth axes at the same time. Based on the location and the position of the viewer’s eye, the display monitors eye movement that is then broken down into milliseconds while the image gets rendered instantly. This sensor helps in giving the user a 3D glass-free holographic experience.

Real-time Rendering Algorithm: this helps in giving a real-life like experience as the SR display leverages an original processing algorithm that enables the stereoscopic image appear smoothly.       

Micro-Optical lens: the micro-optical lens helps in separating the image for the left and right eye screen, that further allows the stereoscopic viewing through naked eyes. This is located above the LCD display to create.

Sony’s future plan is to extend this SR Display in examining realistic customization of a car, without even having to look at it physically.

The Spatial Reality Display comes with high-end technologies and thus would require a high configuration PC and laptops.

Although the date of the availability is not yet confirmed but it is likely to come by this month, with a price tag of $4,999.99. The display will be compatible with Unity and Unreal Engine 4 that will allow the export of the new and existing 3D content using Sony’s Software Development kit.
