Parallel phase-shifting digital holography can obtain three-dimensional information of a dynamically moving object with high accuracy by using space-division multiplexing of multiple holograms required for phase-shifting interferometry. We demonstrated high-speed parallel phase-shifting digital holography and obtained images of the phase variation of air caused by a compressed gas flow sprayed from a nozzle. In particular, we found the interesting phenomenon of periodic phase distributions. Reconstructed images were obtained at frame rates of 20,000 and 180,000 frames per second.
