Three dimensional projected film displays without glasses are now possible as a result of recent developments in autostereoscopy of the parallax panoramagram type. These dis-plays have the features of: full color; excellent resolution; horizontal parallax; con-ventional illumination sources; recording with conventional filming techniques; and in some cases, full motion. The applications include: three dimensional aerial and satellite reconnaisance pictures; 3D computerized axial tomography displays for medicine, seismology and industrial purposes; scientific stereoscopic displays; and educational, advertizing and entertainment slides and motion pictures in depth. A Stereorama film projector has been developed, which back projects a sequence of slides on to a lenticular-type screen. A motion picture projector is being designed.
