Paper Abstract

A real-time 3D automultiscopic display suitable for 3D television and general consumer use is described. This display is, effectively, a real-time holographic stereogram. The main component in this display is a cylindrical Holographic Optical Element. Recorded onto the curved surface of this hollow cylinder are several transmission holograms that act as unidirectional screens. Unlike conventional screens that scatter light in all directions, these holographic screens scatter light in all directions vertically but in only one small direction horizontally. Therefore a 2D image projected onto one of these screens is only viewable within one small horizontal angular range.
