Paper Abstract

Soft copy autostereoscopic displays -- systems which present directly viewable three dimensional images from projected film or video sources -- involve formidable optical and information handling problems. Past attempts to develop such displays have resulted in systems which had serious limitations or were in fact theoretically nonfunctional. Recent developments in display optics, video technology and data transmission, however, make autostereoscopic displays a practical objective. Applications include aerial photo interpretation, medical imaging, molecular modeling and ultimately entertainment.
