Rapid Hologram Generation Utilising Layer-Based Approach and Graphic Rendering for Realistic 3D Image Reconstruction by Angular Tiling-Image

An approach of rapid hologram generation for the realistic 3D image reconstruction based on the angular tiling concept is proposed, using a new graphic rendering approach integrated with a previously developed layer-based method for hologram calculation. A 3D object is simplified as layered cross-sectional images perpendicular to a chosen viewing direction, and our graphics rendering approach allows the incorporation of clear depth cues, occlusion and shading in the generated holograms for angular tiling. The combination of these techniques together with parallel computing reduces the computation time of a single-view hologram for a 3D image of XGA resolution to 176 ms using a single consumer graphics processing unit card.
