Stereographic principles have been usefully employed in the production of display holograms. This paper addresses some of the difficulties encountered in the engineering of stereographic video displays and some of the workable counter measures available to compensate for these difficulties. The impact of diffraction is given particular attention in the discussion. Trade-offs between optimization for any one depth clue, such as accommodation depth clue, and general display performance are explored. Three related optical system geometries are discussed. These optical system geometries and some of their useful variations are diagrammed. Means for approximating important parameters such as; display brightness, viewing zone size, image resolution, and number of object scene views required are given. Methods of optimizing the important parameters to improve display performance and reduce its cost are included. Example solutions of the approximations are illustrated and compared to typical values that were experimentally measured.
