Paper Abstract

The ICVision system is a diffractive display based on VLSI and liquid crystal technologies which displays the functional equivalent of a real-time holographic stereogram. We have previously reported several static ICVision displays, based on the partial pixel architecture, that displays a fixed 3D scene. Herein we report the first real-time implementation of an ICVision display (also based on the partial pixel architecture) that displays the functional equivalent of a real-time holographic stereogram. The device is constructed using a diffractive optical element and a separate liquid crystal display. The animated sequence is pre-computed then played back in real-time using standard VGA on a 80386 or higher PC. The display, drive electronics, and computer may be battery powered making the display suitable for portable use.
