Paper Abstract

News ticker is used to show breaking news or news headlines in conventional 2-D broadcasting system. For the case of the breaking news, the fast creation is need, because the information should be sent quickly. In addition, if holographic 3- D broadcasting system is started in the future, news ticker will remain. On the other hands, some approaches for generation of CGH patterns have been suggested like the ray-tracing method and look-up table (LUT) method. However, these methods have some drawbacks that needs much time or needs huge memory size for look-up table. Recently, a novel LUT (N-LUT) method for fast generation of CGH patterns of 3-D objects with a dramatically reduced LUT without the loss of computational speed was proposed. Therefore, we proposed the method to efficiently generate the holographic news ticker in holographic 3DTV or 3-D movies using N-LUT method. The proposed method is largely consisted of five steps: construction of the LUT for each character, extraction of characters in news ticker, generation and shift of the CGH pattern for news ticker using the LUT for each character, composition of hologram pattern for 3-D video and hologram pattern for news ticker and reconstruct the holographic 3D video with news ticker. To confirm the proposed method, moving car in front of the castle is used as a 3D video and the words 'HOLOGRAM CAPTION GENERATOR' is used as a news ticker. From this simulation results confirmed the feasibility of the proposed method in fast generation of CGH patterns for holographic captions.
