In a three-dimensional display scheme based on integral imaging, the mismatch of the system parameters between the pickup and display systems or between the display systems is an important issue from a practical point of view. In this paper, we propose a method that provides excellent flexibility to the integral imaging system parameters and display conditions. In the proposed method, elemental images obtained in the pickup process are digitally analyzed and full three-dimensional information of the object is extracted. The extracted three-dimensional information is then transmitted to each display system and modified, so as to be suitable for the display conditions and the system parameters of the display system. Finally elemental images are generated with the modified three-dimensional information for the display system and integrated in the form of a three-dimensional image.
