A novel autostereoscopic display with high resolution of 2D and 3D images and wide viewing angle was proposed by combining an "active scanning film" and fast response panel. The Multi-Electrode Driving Liquid Crystal (MeD-LC) Lens was utilized to realize the "active scanning film" for projecting the images to different directions to widen the viewing angle. By applying the operating voltage sequentially, MeD-LC lens could not only be switched on/off, but also horizontally moved to "scan" and project images without degrading the resolution. Additionally, the MeD-LC lens had the benefits of high focusing ability and low operation voltage. Consequently, the 3D crosstalk was lower by using MeDLC lens compare to that of conventional LC lens.
