Abstract

This paper presents an extended viewing angle holographic display for reconstruction of real world objects in which the capture and display systems are decoupled. This is achieved by employing multiple tilted spatial light modulators (SLMs) arranged in a circular configuration. In order to prove the proper reconstruction and visual perception of holographic images the Wigner distribution function is employed. We describe both the capture system using a single static camera with a rotating object and a holographic display utilizing six tilted SLMs. The experimental results based on the reconstruction of computer generated and real world scenes are presented. The coherent noise removal procedure is described and implemented. The experiments prove the possibility to view images reconstructed in the display binocularly and with good quality.
