Title: Orientation-based 3D image display

Abstract: This disclosure describes a host controller configured to combine image data associated with left and right images of a 3D image to control a display consistent with an orientation for the display (e.g., a first and second plurality of active parallax barriers of the display). In response to an orientation for the display, the host controller may combine image data associated with respective left and right images of with a 3D image in a first or second interleaved format to be consistent with the orientation for the display. For example, the host controller may combine the image data to be line-interleaved or pixel interleaved, based on an orientation for the display. In this manner, the display may receive the combined image data and present the 3D image consistent with the orientation for the display, while reducing processing performed by the display to present the 3D image.
