Paper Abstract

Entertainment is usually considered an important application for stereoscopic display technologies. In order to provide more realistic and exciting VR effect, it is desirable to have as large screen as possible. However, the screen sizes of current autostereoscopic display technologies are limited by either the displaying panel or the optical components. In a government-sponsored project, we designed and fabricated a novel projection screen for autostereoscopic display. The screen consists of two layers of microretarder and a layer of polarization reserved diffuser. Both the screens and the projectors can be arrayed to build a large autostereoscopic display system. Curved or multi-plane screens are also possible. This kind of autostereoscopic display screen has the advantages of ease to scale up, low cost and no precise alignment between the projectors and the screen required. In this paper, the manufacture considerations of such a screen are studied and the experimental results are presented.
