Three-Dimensional Integral Television Using High-Resolution Video System with 2000 Scanning Lines
Use of three-dimensional (3-D) images in broadcasting, communications, and many other areas has been anticipated for some time, but practical applications have shown little progress. One reason is that most 3-D imaging systems fail to simultaneously provide: (1) binocular disparity that can be experienced without special glasses, (2) a convergence point that matches the eye’s accommodation point, and (3) motion parallaxes that enable an observer to see different images corresponding to different positions horizontally and vertically (full parallaxes). These capabilities would enable observers to see a 3-D image as though it were a real object. By expanding research on spatial imaging, we aim to develop a 3-D imaging technology that performs all these functions.
