Both multiview and light-field reconstructions are proposed for a multiple-projector 3D display system. To compare the performance of the reconstruction algorithms in the same system, an optimized multiview reconstruction algorithm with sub-view-zones (SVZs) is proposed. The algorithm divided the conventional view zones in multiview display into several SVZs and allocates more view images. The optimized reconstruction algorithm unifies the conventional multiview reconstruction and light-field reconstruction algorithms, which can indicate the difference in performance when multiview reconstruction is changed to light-field reconstruction. A prototype consisting of 60 projectors with an arc diffuser as its screen is constructed to verify the algorithms. Comparison of different configurations of SVZs shows that light-field reconstruction provides large-scale 3D images with the smoothest motion parallax; thus it may provide better overall performance for large-scale 360° display than multiview reconstruction.
