Building a Life-Size Automultiscopic Display Using Consumer Hardware

Speaker: Andrew Jones
Host: GPU Technology Conference

Automultiscopic displays allow multiple users to experience 3D content without the hassle of special glasses or head gear. Such displays generate many simultaneous images with high-angular density, so that each eye perceives a distinct and different view. This presents a unique challenge for content acquisition and rendering. In this talk, we explain how to build an automultiscopic display using off-the-shelf projectors, video-splitters, and graphics cards. We also present a GPU-based algorithm for rendering a large numbers of views from a sparse array of video cameras.
