In this paper, we analyze the limitation on the expressible depth range that is one major problem of integral imaging. We provide the explanation that exactly predicts the experimental results and the way to evaluate the expressible depth range numerically. We also give the design method for the multi-central depth plane integral imaging system. Finally, we will show the experimental results for verification.
