Paper Abstract

StereoGraphics Corporation has introduced a new flat-panel autostereoscopic display, the SynthaGram. It produces bright, clear and satisfying three-dimensional images that may be viewed from a substantial angle of view by many observers. A progression of perspective views, like that used by the parallax panoramagram, is created either by computer or photographic means. Each view is sampled at the sub-pixel level and mapped by means of a process called Interzigging. The resultant Interzigged image is a sub-pixel map of spatial information. The map is displayed on a flat panel screen - in the present case a liquid crystal display. A lenticular screen overlays the flat-panel display, but the direction of the lenticule boundaries are angled to the vertical. The technology, we believe, is the basis for electronic autostereoscopic display solutions for many applications.
