Abstract

The discrepancy of disparity and accommodation in current 3D display systems is one source of discomfort for the audience. To solve this problem, an adaptive focus integral image (InIm) system is proposed, which could adjust the image location according to the video content. To prove concept, a fast-response liquid crystal microlens is proposed and its performance is simulated.
