We have developed a multi-view image integration system which combines seven parallax video images into a single video image so that it fits the parallax barrier. The apertures of this barrier are not stripes but tiny rectangles that are arranged in the shape of stairs. Commodity hardware is used to satisfy a specification which requires that the resolution of each parallax video image is SXGA(1645×800 pixel resolution), the resulting integrated image is QUXGA-W(3840×2400 pixel resolution), and the frame rate is fifteen frames per second. The point is that the system can provide with QUXGA-W video image, which corresponds to 27MB, at 15fps, that is about 2Gbps. Using the integration system and a LCD display with the parallax barrier, we can enjoy an immersive live video image which supports seven viewpoints without special glasses. In addition, since the system can superimpose the CG images of the relevant seven viewpoints into the live video images, it is possible to communicate with remote users by sharing a virtual object.
