Abstract
The objective of this Phase I effort is to design and simulate an innovative optical architecture for true, interactive-rate holographic video. Our novel technique takes a contrarian approach to existing multi-view and holographic video systems, which are typically crippled by "jailbar" dark regions, limited viewing zones, and image distortions arising from rendering techniques not intended for multi-perspective displays. The proposed multi-view holovideo system is a highly multi-perspective autostereoscopic display, capable of generating three-dimensional Spatial imagery visible across a 30-degree viewing zone, comprised of 100+ XGA-resolution views. This represents an order-of-magnitude leap in performance over previous approaches. Actuality Systems is a recognized leader in the commercialization of Spatial 3-D visualization systems; construction of a prototype in Phase II will be simplified by the reuse of certain core technologies. The resulting display is amenable to cost- and size-reduction, and will be suitable for use on the desktop, in the cockpit, and eventually in handheld devices.
