Paper Abstract

Integral 3D television based on integral imaging requires huge amounts of information. Earlier, we built an Integral 3D television using Super Hi-Vision (SHV) technology, with 7680 pixels horizontally and 4320 pixels vertically. Here we report on an improvement of image quality by developing a new video system with an equivalent of 8000 scan lines and using this for Integral 3D television. We conducted experiments to evaluate the resolution of 3D images using this prototype equipment and were able to show that by using the pixel-offset method we have eliminated aliasing that was produced by the full-resolution SHV video equipment. As a result, we confirmed that the new prototype is able to generate 3D images with a depth range approximately twice that of Integral 3D television using the full-resolution SHV.
