We describe a method in which holograms can be produced by calculation from images captured by integral photography (IP). We present a basic algorithm obtained by simulating IP reconstruction, in which conditions are set so as not to cause aliasing in the holograms after the calculations. To reduce the calculation load, we also propose a way to limit the(More)
We propose a method to reduce the color moire fringes that are attributable to the structure of a color flat-panel display in integral three-dimensional imaging. The method uses two types of optical low-pass filter, diffuser and defocus. The effectiveness of the method was confirmed in an experiment. We describe a way to design these filters with moire's(More)
The effects of focusing on the resolution characteristics of integral photography (IP) are analyzed. First, there is an attempt to obtain the resolution characteristics of capture and display systems as the product of their modulation transfer functions (MTFs). Next, the relationship between this overall MTF and focusing during the capture is studied. The(More)
The effects of misarrangement of elements (elemental lenses and elemental images) that construct three-dimensional (3-D) images in integral photography are presented. If the lens arrays of the capturing system and the display system are not aligned accurately, positional errors of elements may occur, causing the 3-D image to be reconstructed in an incorrect(More)
We demonstrate a method of enlarging the viewing zone for holography that has holograms with a pixel structure. First, aliasing generated by the sampling of a hologram by pixel is described. Next the high-order diffracted beams reproduced from the hologram that contains aliasing are explained. Finally, we show that the viewing zone can be enlarged by(More)
We have developed an integral three-dimensional (3-D) television that uses a 2000-scanning-line video system that can shoot and display 3-D color moving images in real time. We had previously developed an integral 3-D television that used a high-definition television system. The new system uses -6 times as many elemental images [160 (horizontal) x 118(More)
A major problem with integral photography using a lens array is overlapping recordings (cross talk) between elemental images. Another problem is the decrease in the number of pixels in the elemental images. We describe two methods (including analyses) of manipulating the aperture of a telecentric optical system to improve these problems. The first method(More)
