Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel display method to realize a high-resolution image in a central visual field for a hyper-realistic head dome projector. The method uses image processing based on the characteristics of human vision, namely, high central visual acuity and low peripheral visual acuity, and pixel shift technology, which is one of the resolution-enhancing technologies for projectors. The projected image with our method is a fine wide-viewing-angle image with high definition in the central visual field. We evaluated the psychological effects of the projected images with our method in terms of sensation of reality. According to the result, we obtained 1.5 times higher resolution in the central visual field and a greater sensation of reality by using our method.
