LG files patent to improve VR image quality

LG 360 VR

LG is looking to address one aspect of VR where the technology lags behind more traditional display technologies, its resolution. A patent has just been filed by the Korean company which discusses a VR display capable of alleviating the 'screen-door effect' (being able to see the gaps between pixels in a VR headset’s display), thereby improving image quality inside VR systems.

The patent describes a 'light diffusion member' that is placed between the display panel and the lenses.

The patent then goes on to outline that this 'diffuses light emitted from a light-transmitting area of a display panel to a light-blocking area of the display panel' and 'improves the image quality of the display.'
