A group of tools has been developed to analyze the display performance of light-field displays based on a micro-lens array. The simulation tools are based on the principle of Snell's Law and the characteristic of human visual system, in which the optical aberrations of lens arrays and the focus of eyes have also been taken into account. Some important issues in light-field displays can be shown clearly before the fabrication, such as perspective views, view zones, crosstalk, color moire patterns, and also the depth information in light-field near-eye displays. Therefore, the developed tools can provide a useful approach to verify the improvement of new techniques and also give a reference of the final performance for a system set-up with optimal specification. To our best of knowledge, the developed tools is the first approach to analyze the performance of 3D displays considering the optical aberrations and the characteristic of human visual system.

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.

    IS&T's Digital Library is Moving
    In our effort to ensure an excellent product, we have encountered a delay in transitioning the content to the new platform. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We are doing everything we can to get the new library up as soon as possible.
