Reality Imaging

3D Video System with Resolution of 300,000 Pixels

Aiming for realization of 3D images that are natural and easy to watch

Outline

To achieve natural and easy-to-watch 3D television without the use of special glasses, we are conducting research on light-field 3D images that can be seen even the viewer moves horizontally or vertically*1.
To improve the quality of 3D images, we are exhibiting display technologies using high-density light-field reproduction and shooting techniques using multiple cameras.

Shooting and display technology for 3D images

Features

Improving the quality of 3D images shot by a camera array

We developed a technology to accurately interpolate light-field information necessary for 3D images from multi-viewpoint images taken with an array of cameras arranged in a grid pattern. Moreover, we generated high-quality 3D images using multi-viewpoint robotic cameras*2 incorporated in a 4K camera, using a 3D model generation technique.

Improving the quality of 3D image displays using high-density light-field reproduction

To improve the quality of 3D image displays, a technology to reproduce and display a high-density light field is needed. We developed a technology to reproduce the high-density light field obtained by imaging equipment using multiple projectors and a display optical system, thereby improving the resolution of 3D images to 300,000 pixels, which is about three times higher than that for conventional technology.
