We have developed a method for combining the images of multiple flat-panel displays to improve the quality of integral three-dimensional (3D) images. A multi-image combining optical system (MICOS) is used to magnify and combine the images of multiple displays without gaps between multiple active display areas. However, in the previous prototype, the image quality of the 3D images deteriorated due to the use of a MICOS that had a complicated structure and a diffuser plate. This paper describes an optical system for combining multiple images while suppressing the deterioration of 3D image quality. The improved method can suppress the deterioration of the image quality because it uses a simple structure as a MICOS and does not require a diffuser plate. Furthermore, the thickness of the entire equipment was increased because parallel light was required for the backlight of the LCD panel in the previous design. The thickness of the entire equipment could be reduced to 1/5 or less because diffused light can be used in the improved design.

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.
