As an event organizer, one of your goals is to provide better visuals to “wow” your attendees.

While 3D can definitely do the trick, you have probably been reticent to use this technology because of the need to put on annoying, dorky glasses to realize the total effect. Thanks to technological advances, that isn’t the case any longer!

Research also backs up the power of 3D. According to a 2011 Tilburg University study, attendees had a 45% higher retention rate of the materials being shown on a 3D display compared to a standard Plasma display. And according to Dinenco, a 3D technology company, this platform significantly increases dwell time over other standard Plasma offerings.

Today we will define the industry terminology of these new displays, how meeting planners can use them and the features/benefits of this state-of-the-art technology (make sure you check out the other hot technology trends).


Glasses-Free Plasma Display: 3D technology that doesn’t require viewers to wear special glasses and can be viewed from a wide variety of angles.

4K Native Resolution: The horizontal resolution is 4,000 pixels.

Quad Full High Definition (QFHD): A video resolution that offers four times the number of pixels offered by 1080p Plasma Displays.

Multiple Viewing Angles:  3D effect available from different view points.

Lenticular Lens: An array of magnifying lenses, designed so that when viewed from slightly different angles, different images are magnified. This type of display uses a series of these type of lenses to produce the 3D effect.


  • Streaming video from the presentation to remote locations in the room or in the foyer so attendees can still see the speaker clearly even if they need to step out of the meeting space.
  • Sharing photos from the meeting.
  • Showing products and services within the exhibitor booth to attendees through videos, photos and presentations.
  • Kicking off a product launching event to a large audience who are seated throughout the room.
