We propose a retinal projection type super multi-view (SMV) HMD using a 2D microlens array. The smooth motion parallax is provided by SMV technique. Moreover, if a viewer focuses his or her eyes on the displayed 3D image, the stimulus of accommodation of the human eye is reproduced naturally by SMV technique. Therefore, although the proposed HMD is a monocular HMD, it provides observers with natural 3D images. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed HMD by using camera, we constructed the prototype holographic optical element (HOE). The number of microlenses is 9, and the focal length and the size of each microlens of the prototype HOE were 11.1 mm and 20 mm X 20 mm, respectively. The distance between each convergence point was 6.67 mm. We displayed 3D images at the distance from 200mm to 2000mm in front of the camera, and confirmed the accommodation by the prototype HMD.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
