Abstract

A new type of multi-viewing zone screen for multiview 3-D display is described. The screen is made by stacking a Fresnel lens and a reflective prism array plate. The screen performs both focusing and beam dividing functions and directs very narrow light beams to three viewing zones for three spectators. The results of experimental testing of the screen have demonstrated that current technology of Fresnel lens and prism grooves on PMMA(Ploymethyl Methacrylate) allows manufacture of screen having a pixel size of about 1-2 mm. This size is reasonable enough for a screen with dimensions about 1m size. Optical qualities of Fresnel lenses and grooved prism arrays achieve an angular resolution for the screen of several angular minutes.
