Images displayed by holographic methods on phase-only light modulators inevitably suffer from speckle noise. It is partly caused by multiple uncontrolled interferences between laser light rays forming adjacent pixels of the image while having a random phase state. In this work the experimental proof of concept of an almost speckle-less projection method is presented, which assumes introducing a spatial separation of the image pixels, thus eliminating the spurious interferences. A single displayed sub-frame consists of separated light spots of very low intensity error. The sub-frames with different sampling offsets are then displayed sequentially to produce a non-fragmented color final image.
