Dynamic Field of View in a Tomographic Light Field Display

  author={Jason B. Ginsberg and Neil Movva},
  journal={SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal},
In this paper, we extend the field of view (FoV) of a glasses-free multilayer light field display, which we have assembled. By integrating a camera into the rendering and display pipeline, we constrain our light field display to a narrow FoV at the center of the display. As the viewing cone follows the viewer’s gaze, we optimize our iterative tomographic reconstruction to be utilized more efficiently and extend the apparent FoV from 10° to 100°. Finally, we demonstrate the realtime generation…

Wide field of view compressive light field display using a multilayer architecture and tracked viewers
This paper demonstrates a real‐time, glasses‐free 3D display that offers a 100° × 40° field of view and constrain optimization to create narrow view cones that are directed to a few viewers' eyes, allowing the available display bandwidth to be utilized more efficiently.
Layered 3D: tomographic image synthesis for attenuation-based light field and high dynamic range displays
Optimization of tomographic techniques for image synthesis on displays composed of compact volumes of light-attenuating material allows optimal construction of high dynamic range displays, confirming existing heuristics and providing the first extension to multiple, disjoint layers.
Real-time Image Generation for Compressive Light Field Displays
With the invention of integral imaging and parallax barriers in the beginning of the 20th century, glasses-free 3D displays have become feasible. Only today—more than a century later—glasses-free 3D
The light field stereoscope
This work presents the first wearable VR display supporting high image resolution as well as focus cues, and demonstrates significant improvements in resolution and retinal blur quality over related near-eye displays.
Polarization fields: dynamic light field display using multi-layer LCDs
P polarization field displays are introduced as an optically-efficient design for dynamic light field display using multi-layered LCDs and achieve increased brightness, higher resolution, and extended depth of field, as compared to existing automultiscopic display methods for dual-layer and multi-layer LCDs.
Tensor displays: compressive light field synthesis using multilayer displays with directional backlighting
A unified optimization framework, based on nonnegative tensor factorization (NTF), encompassing all tensor display architectures is introduced, which is the first to allow joint multilayer, multiframe light field decompositions and is also the first optimization method for designs combining multiple layers with directional backlighting.
Content-adaptive parallax barriers: optimizing dual-layer 3D displays using low-rank light field factorization
Simulations and experiments characterize the resulting content-adaptive parallax barriers for low-rank light field approximation, and temporal multiplexing of masks is shown to achieve higher-rank approximations.
Beyond parallax barriers: applying formal optimization methods to multilayer automultiscopic displays
New generalizations to parallax barrier concepts are revealed, enabled by the application of formal optimization methods to multi-layer attenuation-based designs in a manner that uniquely leverages the compressive nature of 3D scenes for display applications.
