Paper Abstract

We have developed some prototypes of a one-dimensional integral imaging (1-D II) autostereoscopic display. Generally, II is one of the most promising methods for realizing an autostereoscopic display. However, a lens or barrier pitch is wide and obtrusive because this method requires many parallaxes. In this case, slanting lens or barrier is undesirable because the pattern is asymmetrical. From the result of examination about the display resolution of the autostereoscopic display, we adopted an LCD with mosaic color filter arrangement and a vertical lenticular sheet. We changed the color filter to the mosaic arrangement for two types of LCD. One was an LCD of 20.8-inch diagonal size with QUXGA resolution (3200 x 2400 pixels) and another was an LCD of 15.4-inch diagonal size with WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels). The typical specifications of the prototypes of the autostereoscopic display were 32 parallaxes with 300 horizontal resolution for the 20.8-inch size and 18 parallaxes with the same resolution for the 15.4-inch size. We confirmed these prototypes showed good appearance and stereoscopic display properties due to the symmetrical lens pattern.
