Paper Abstract

A theoretical discussion of a method of reducing redundancy from spatial image data is in-cluded. An approach to the reduction of bandwidth for multiple image three-dimensional television, is developed through the use of data gathered about subject's spatial properties, as well as conventional image properties. Types of apparatus suitable for gathering spatial and image data as they pertain to methods of reducing redundancy are discussed. A wave form derived from spatial image data is suggested and analyzed with reference to its usefulness in the transmission and storage of spatial image data. A brief description of the authors experimental work in the development of reproduction geometry for three-dimensional television displays that are viewed without special glasses of any kind and display parallax is provided. A discussion of theoretical advantages of two-dimensional image synthesis from three-dimen-sional spatial image data is provided. The use of such image synthesis in connection with the aforementioned transmission wave form allowes certain developments of existing television displays to be proposed as part of a practicable system.
