Abstract

An approximate voxel model for integral imaging is proposed by ray tracing. By analyzing the case of corresponding pixels overlapping completely and partially in the image space, the voxel is defined with an appropriate approximation, and the voxel size and its distribution feature in imaging space are derived. The model is verified in a reconstruction experiment of a resolution target and compared with the calculation result of an integral imaging display or reconstruction system. The proposed model is simple and easy to calculate and thus useful for the evaluation and optimization of integral imaging systems.
