In the paper Wigner Distribution (WD) representation analysis of holographic display is presented. The display reconstructs holographic image by means of Spatial Light Modulator. Two major aspects are covered: imaging and viewing. Optically reconstructed images are characterized by low and spatially variant resolution. Utilizing WD representation we present a simple formula for resolution as a function of both coordinates: transverse and longitudinal. The analysis of an aliasing effect allows for meaningful extension of the field of view. All theoretical results are proven experimentally. The WD representation of angularly and spatially limited holographic image is extended to cover its visual perception as well. Angular resolution and field of view are theoretically examined. Both monocular and binocular perception are studied and illustrated experimentally.
