Reconfiguration is a computational algorithm of adaptively updating computer generated holograms (CGHs) for the positional change of an observer’s viewing window with low computational load by efficiently using pre-calculated elementary CGHs. A fast reconfiguration algorithm of CGHs for three-dimensional mesh objects is proposed. Remarkable improvement is achieved in the computation speed of CGHs, which is at least 20-times faster than repetitive re-computation of CGHs. The image quality of reconfigured CGHs is analyzed.
