Paper Abstract

The DepthCube 3D Volumetric Display is a solid state, rear projection, volumetric display that consists of two main components: a high-speed video projector, and a multiplanar optical element composed of a air-spaced stack of liquid crystal scattering shutters. The high-speed video projector projects a sequence of slices of the 3D image into the multiplanar optical element where each slice is halted at the proper depth. Proprietary multiplanar anti-aliasing algorithms smooth the appearance of the resultant stack of image slices to produce a continuous appearing truly three-dimensional image. The resultant 3D image is of exceptional quality and provides all the 3D vision cues found in viewing real object.
