Diffraction Specific Coherent Panoramagrams of Real Scenes

James Barabas, Sunny Jolly, Daniel Smalley, V. Michael Bove, Jr.


We have previously introduced the Diffraction Specific Coherent Panoramagram – a multi-view holographic stereogram that provides correct visual accommodation as well as smooth motion parallax with far fewer views than a normal stereogram. This method uses scene depth information to generate directionally-varying wavefront curvature, and can be computed at interactive rates using off-the-shelf graphics processors. In earlier work we used z-buffer information associated with parallax views rendered from synthetic graphics models; in this paper we demonstrate the computation of Diffraction Specific Coherent Panoramagrams of real-world scenes captured by cameras.
