Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel 3D display using a new principle which has the features of both Integral Imaging (II) and volumetric display. The proposed display consists of one 2D display and two lens arrays, a convex lens array and a concave lens array. The two lens arrays are placed between the 2D display and the observer. When the observer watches the 2D display through the two lens arrays, he feels that the image displayed by 2D display is reproduced at the position which is different from the position of the 2D display. Furthermore, by changing the position of the 2D display, the image is reproduced at the different position than before. Therefore the various depth images are reproduced by moving 2D display. This is how the proposed display reconstructs 3D space. Here, we simulated this display with ray tracing and checked its validity.
