Abstract

Augmented reality (AR) using a holographic head-mounted display has been attracting a great deal of attention. In the AR system, computer-generated holograms (CGHs) are calculated and displayed on an electronic display. However, the time required for making CGHs is very long. Here, we propose a fast calculation method for arbitrary viewpoint movements in holographic AR systems. The calculation uses a Fourier transform optical system to enlarge the visual field of electroholography. In experiments, the generation time of the proposed method was approximately twice as fast as that of the conventional method. Furthermore, the quality of the CGHs generated by our method was sufficiently high.
