Three-dimensional display systems.

Holliman, N. S. (2006) 'Three-dimensional display systems.', in Handbook of optoelectronics. Boca Raton: CRC Press, pp. 1067-1099.


Today’s three-dimensional display systems provide new advantages to end-users; they are able to support an auto-stereoscopic, no-glasses, three-dimensional experience with significantly enhanced image quality over previous generation technology. There have been particularly rapid advances in personal auto-stereoscopic three-dimensional display for desktop users brought about because of the opportunity to combine micro-optics and LCD displays coinciding with the availability of low cost desktop image processing and three-dimensional computer graphics systems. In this chapter we concentrate our detailed technical discussion on personal three-dimensional displays designed for desktop use as these are particularly benefiting from new micro-optic elements. We emphasize the systems aspect of three-dimensional display design believing it is important to combine good optical design and engineering with the correct digital imaging technologies to obtain a high quality three-dimensional effect for end users. The general principles discussed will be applicable to the design of all types of stereoscopic three-dimensional display.
