A new real-time integral imaging pick-up and display method is demonstrated. This proposed method utilizes the dual-camera optical pick-up part to collect 3D information of real scene in real-time without pre-calibration. Elemental images are then provided by a computer-generated integral imaging part and displayed by a projection-type integral imaging display part. The theoretical analysis indicates the method is robust to the camera position deviation, which profits the real-time data processing. Experimental results show that the fully continuous, real 3D scene pick-up and display system is feasible with a throughput of 8 fps in real time. Further analysis predicts that the parallel optimization can be adopted by the proposed method for real-time 3D pick-up and display with a throughput of 25 fps.
