A quantitative assessment method for computer-generated holograms is presented. Our scheme is based on a simple evaluation quantity reflecting the optical radiating power from the holograms; this assures the overall validity of our method as a three-dimensional (3D) display assessment technique. Moreover, the effect of location from which the 3D view is observed is ruled out from the result. This contributes to both economy of computation and conciseness of the result.
