In this study, a new autostereoscopic 3D display design approach based on our patent specification is proposed and demonstrated. In contrast to common autostereoscopic two-viewdesigns with lenticulars, our approach allows more distance between image splitter and display panel. In comparison to 3D displays showing details at nominal distance, our design projects the images to a near zone in front of the display. As a consequence, the low magnification factor reduces distance errors from relative movements of display panel and image splitter. An image processing algorithm was developed to arrange the content and correct display shortcomings of image allocation caused by optical properties of the lenticulars. In addition, this algorithm allows static adjustment and tracking of observer position in a defined area in front of the display. We integrated the display in a production chain for digitalization and presentation of cultural heritage objects and developed special web-based modules for stereo rendering and user interaction, so that observers may explore cultural content in a natural manner.

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.
