We present a parameter analysis of the integral Fourier hologram that is generated from multiple orthographic view images of a three-dimensional object. The maximum view angle, the lens array pitch, and the projection angle step are analyzed to reveal their effects on the maximum size of the reconstructed object and its maximum spatial frequency. With these analyses, we propose a lens array shift method to enhance the resolution of the reconstructed object from the Fourier hologram. The principles are verified by computational and optical experiment.
