A volume hologram recorded with a lens array is proposed as a color transflective screen for Head Worn Display (HWD) systems. Design, fabrication as well as proof of concept are reported. Light from a single MEMS-based projector is efficiently diffracted towards the eye with an angular spread given by the numerical aperture of the lenses forming the lens array. Using a dual-focus contact lens, full color high-resolution images are added to the HWD user's normal vision. A full color system with a 55 degrees lateral field of view is demonstrated. This screen offers the possibility for small footprint and large field of view HWD's.
