Title: Autostereoscopic lens sheet with planar areas

Abstract: A dual mode autostereoscopic lens sheet. The lens sheet has at least one refractive region and at least one non-refractive region. When the lens sheet is held in intimate juxtaposition with a display, stereoscopic content may be viewed in the refractive region while planar content may be simultaneously viewed in the non-refractive region. In a preferred embodiment, the non-refractive region forms a vertical column on one end of the lens sheet and the refractive region forms a vertical column on the other end of the lens sheet. Advantageously, the refractive region defines a picture area having an aspect ratio of approximately 1.3:1.
