We propose the use of synchronously moving micro-optics (lenslet arrays) for image pickup and display in three-dimensional integral imaging to overcome the upper resolution limit imposed by the Nyquist sampling theorem. With the proposed technique, we show experimentally that the viewing resolution can be improved without reducing the three-dimensional viewing aspect of the reconstructed image.
