Abstract

In this work we present a prototype multiview projection display that combines high-spatial and high-angular resolution with low complexity, compact form factor and potentially low-cost design. The system consists of a single projector and an image steering projection screen. It is based on beam steering using decentered microlens arrays in the projection screen and time-sequential rear-projection of the view images. The prototype has a 25 in. screen, a total of 27 viewing zones with XGA resolution and a horizontal field of view of 30°.
