In this paper, we present a novel projection-type 3-D integral imaging display with an adaptive liquid crystal (LC) prism array. Comparing with conventional integral imaging display, the proposed system demonstrated that the viewing zones for a projection type integral imaging display was successfully extended by time-multiplexed technique and without any mechanical movement. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on combining an adaptive LC prism array with the projection-type integral imaging 3-D display. The proposed display is attractive for future wide viewing zone projection-type integral imaging 3-D displays.
