Abstract

Quality of three-dimensional (3D) displays depends on optical apparatus setups and image generation algorithms. We present a 3D quantitative evaluation method and develop a corresponding system to evaluate the performance of 3D autostereoscopic display. The evaluation system consists of a set of dedicated 3D evaluation reference patterns, a 3D image acquisition platform and a personal computer for auto-control, image processing, and quantitative analysis. Using the proposed method and system, we evaluate resolution, viewing angle, accuracy of image depth, and quality of displayed image of the 3D autostereoscopic display. Furthermore, we perform the evaluation experiments using two integral photography-based 3D displays. The quantificational evaluation results of main parameters are largely consistent with results of theoretical analysis of evaluated displays and well verify feasibility and availability of the evaluation system. An application experiment using one lenticular-based 3D display is also conducted to verify the universality of our proposed evaluation system.
