We discuss a method to record and reconstruct color holograms by using a stack of photodiode sensors associated to a one-way reference beam. The reconstruction algorithm follows a convolution strategy in which a transverse magnification leads to the full reconstruction of the object in the reconstructed horizon. The transverse magnification of the object depends on the curvature of the reference wave. Analysis of the spatial resolution indicates that it is linked to the transversal magnification but that no extra information is gained or lost in the process. Experimental results confirm the validity of the proposed approach for two-color digital holography. The error due to spectral mixing is investigated and found to be quite irrelevant compared to the range of the phase measurement.
