Paper Abstract

Large real-time holographic displays with full color are feasible with SeeReal's new approach to holography and today's technology. The display provides the information about the 3D scene in a viewing window at each observer eye. A tracking system always locates the viewing windows at the observer eyes. This combination of diffractive and refractive optics leads to a significant reduction of required display resolution and computation effort and enables holographic displays for wide-spread consumer applications. We tested our approach with two 20 inch prototypes that use two alternatives to achieve full color. One prototype uses color filters and interlaced holograms to generate the colors simultaneously. The other prototype generates the colors sequentially. In this paper we review our technology briefly, explain the two alternatives to full color and discuss the next steps toward a consumer product.
