Abstract

Displays capable of true holographic video have been prohibitively expensive and difficult to build. With this paper, we present a suite of modularized hardware components and software tools needed to build a Holovideo Monitor with basic “hacker-space” equipment, highlighting improvements that have enabled the total materials cost to fall to $820, well below that of other holographic displays. It is our hope that the current level of simplicity, development, design flexibility, and documentation will enable the lay engineer, programmer, and scientist to relatively easily replicate, modify, and build upon our designs, bringing true holographic video to the masses.

NameDescription
» Visualization 1       With a video camera at the viewing plane, a computed hologram is output. The monitor is first rotated side-to-side, demonstrating parallax. Then, accommodation cues are shown as the camera is refocused.
» Visualization 2       Demonstrates full-color imagery on the HoloMonitor. Above is the original input video. Center is the scaled down monitor input. Below is the monitor output, captured by a video camera.
