  •  TALK   Interesting and unusual forms of autostereo display
    Date & Time: Thursday, December 1, 2011; 11:00 AM
    Speaker: Gregg Favalora, Optics for Hire (OFH)
    MERL Host: Matthew Brand
    Brief
    • I'll give an information-rich survey presentation on "interesting and unusual" forms of autostereo display. It will assume basic knowledge of autostereo, e.g. lenticular and parallax barrier displays [unless, of course, you'd like a few minutes going over the basics.] I will discuss: spatially-multiplexed, time-multiplexed, and multi-projector systems. This includes: non-obvious depth cues, advances in parallax barrier displays, lenticulars, multi-projector / projection onto corrugated screens, scanned illumination, volumetric, and electro-holographic techniques.
