Abstract

A multichannel holographic recording method is presented for three-dimensional (3D) displays, utilizing pixel-based recording instead of image-based recording in order to realize parallel processing. The proposed approach is composed of two main stages. In the first stage, each two-dimensional (2D) image acquired from multiple viewpoints is partitioned by holographic recording channels (HRC) into nonoverlapping subimages. In the second stage, the corresponding pixels of the subimages are rearranged to constitute an encoding image. The encoding images are recorded simultaneously by each HRC, respectively, so the recording speed is improved significantly. The experimental results have demonstrated that the three-channel system is feasible and the full-parallax hologram reconstructed with white light is acceptable in quality. The three-channel system saves approximately 60% of the recording time in comparison with the single-channel system. More importantly, the proposed method can accomplish a large-scale final hologram composed of multichannel holograms without sacrificing the hologram quality. Several 3D imaging applications such as medical diagnosis and advertisements could benefit from this research.
