Three-Dimensional Projection Display System



In this chapter, a current state of the art of 3D projection displays will be addressed. This begins with a review on conventional and three-dimensional projection display systems. And, some discussions on stereoscopic projection displays such as the polarization-based, the LC shutter-based and the ZScreen-based will be followed. Then, time-sequential multiview projection display and projection integral-imaging display will be discussed. Finally real 3D projection displays such as the Fresnel lens-based and the hologram-based will be reviewed.
