Paper Abstract

We describe the design and performance of a color real-time autostereoscopic 3D display based on our partial pixel 3D display architecture. The primary optical components are an active-matrix liquid crystal display and a diffractive optical element overlay. The display operates at video frame rats and is driven with a conventional VGA signal. 3D animations with horizontal motion parallax are readily viewable as sets of stereo images. The measured contrast and perceived brightness of the display are excellent, but there are minor flaws in image quality due to secondary images.
