Since many years, integral imaging has been discussed as a technique to overcome the limitations of standard still
photography imaging systems where a three-dimensional scene is irrevocably projected onto two dimensions. With the
success of 3D stereoscopic movies, a huge interest in capturing three-dimensional motion picture scenes has been
generated. In this paper, we present a test bench integral imaging camera system aiming to tailor the methods of light
field imaging towards capturing integral 3D motion picture content. We estimate the hardware requirements needed to
generate high quality 3D holoscopic images and show a prototype camera setup that allows us to study these
requirements using existing technology. The necessary steps that are involved in the calibration of the system as well as
the technique of generating human readable holoscopic images from the recorded data are discussed.
