We are studying a three-dimensional (3D) TV system based on a spatial imaging method for the development of a new type of broadcasting that delivers a strong sense of presence. This spatial imaging method can reproduce natural glasses-free 3D images in accordance with the viewer’s position by faithfully reproducing light rays from an object. One challenge to overcome is that the 3D TV system based on spatial imaging requires a huge number of pixels to obtain high-quality 3D images. Therefore, we applied ultra-high-definition video technologies to a 3D TV system to improve the image quality. We developed a 3D camera system to capture multi-view images of large moving objects and calculate high-precision light rays for reproducing the 3D images. We also developed a 3D display using multiple high-definition display devices to reproduce light rays of high-resolution 3D images. The results show that our 3D display can display full-parallax 3D images with a resolution of more than 330,000 pixels.

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.
