We propose an “accurate” phase-added stereogram, which can be defined as an improved phase-added stereogram. Generally, the macroblock size transformed by the fast Fourier transform is the same as the segmentation size of the phase-added stereogram. However, the proposed method uses a lager macroblock size than does the conventional method to reduce quantization error in discrete spatial frequencies in the spatial frequency domain. Therefore, even when the fast Fourier transform is used for calculation, the quality of the reconstructed image can be improved to be as clear as the Fresnel hologram.
