Paper Abstract

The ICVision system provides the functional equivalent of a real-time holographic stereogram. Using diffractive optics, the system creates a set of discrete viewing regions called virtual viewing slits. Each pixel of the display fills each viewing slit with different image data. When the images presented in two virtual viewing slits separated by an interoccular distance are filled with stereoscopic pair images, the observer sees a 3D image. The images are computed so that a different stereo pair is presented each time the viewer moves approximately 1 eye pupil diameter (approximately 3 mm), thus providing a series of stereo views. The current embodiment of the ICVision display is realized by integrating a diffractive optical element with a conventional AMLCD. The authors have previously reported on the design of static displays and real-time monochromatic full motion displays. This paper discusses the design details of a full color display. The current system does not require the use of color filters within the AMLCD. A portable version of the real-time color display will be demonstrated at the conference.
