Autostereoscopic 3D display system with dynamic fusion of viewing zone(DFVZ) under eye-tracking: principles, set-up, and evaluation [Invited]
We study optical technologies for viewer-tracked autostereoscopic 3D display (VTA3D), which provides improved 3D image quality and extended viewing range. In particular, we utilize a technique—the so-called dynamic fusion of viewing zone (DFVZ)—for each 3D optical line to realize image quality equivalent to that achievable at optimal viewing distance, even when a viewer is moving in a depth direction. In addition, we examine quantitative properties of viewing zones provided by the VTA3D system that adopted DFVZ, revealing that the optimal viewing zone can be formed at viewer position. Last, we show that the comfort zone is extended due to DFVZ. This is demonstrated by a viewer’s subjective evaluation of the 3D display system that employs both multiview autostereoscopic 3D display and DFVZ.
