Abstract

Multi-view spatial-multiplexed autostereoscopic 3-D displays normally use a 2-D image source and divide the pixels to generate perspective images. Due to the reduction in the resolution of each perspective image for a large view number, a super-high-resolution 2-D image source is required to achieve 3-D image quality close to the standard of natural vision. This paper proposes an approach by tiling multiple projection images with a low magnification ratio from a microdisplay to resolve the resolution issue. Placing a lenticular array in front of the tiled projection image can lead to an autostereoscopic display. Image distortion and cross-talk issues resulting from the projection lens and pixel structure of the microdisplay have been addressed with proper selection of the active pixel and adequate pixel grouping and masking. Optical simulation has shown that a 37-in. 12-view autostereoscopic display with a full-HD (1920 × 1080) resolution can be achieved with the proposed 3-D architecture.
