Electroholography enables the projection of three-dimensional (3-D) images using a spatial-light modulator. The extreme computational complexity and load involved in generating a hologram make real-time production of holograms difficult. Many methods have been proposed to overcome this challenge and realize real-time reconstruction of 3-D motion pictures. We review two real-time reconstruction techniques for aerial-projection holographic displays. The first reduces the computational load required for a hologram by using an image-type computer-generated hologram (CGH) because an image-type CGH is generated from a 3-D object that is located on or close to the hologram plane. The other technique parallelizes CGH calculation via a graphics processing unit by exploiting the independence of each pixel in the holographic plane.
