Paper Abstract

Holography, in the form of interactive holographic video, promises to fulfil some of the long-time promises of "no glasses" 3D image communication. However, the computational demands of holographic video remain extremely high, and threaten to slow down the technology beyond acceptable response rates. Faster image response is made possible by using holographic stereograms instead of true, fully-computed holograms. Holographic stereograms find their inspiration in older autostereoscopic imaging technologies that date back to as early as 1862.
