27 January 2006 Flatbed-type autostereoscopic display system and its image format for encoding

We have developed a flatbed-type autostereoscopic display system showing continuous motion parallax as an extended form of a one-dimensional integral imaging (1D-II) display system. The 1D-II display architecture is suitable for both flatbed and upright configurations. We have also designed an image format specification for encoding 1D-II data. In this parallax image array format, two (or more) viewpoint images whose viewpoint numbers are separated by a constant number are paired, and all of the paired images are combined to obtain an image the same size as the elemental image array. By using the format, 3-D image quality is hardly degraded by lossy codec. The conversion from this format to the elemental image array is simple and does not depend on changes in the viewing distance and associated changes in camera number. Decoding and converting speeds are sufficiently high due to utilization of middleware based on DirectX.
