Title (EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMAGE DISPLAY METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE VISUALISATION TRIDIMENSIONNELLE D'IMAGE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for three-dimensional display of a two-dimensional image generated from a single view such as that produced on a television screen or a photograph. The apparatus comprises a two-dimensional array of lens assemblies which are placed adjacent to the plane of the two-dimensional image. The lens assemblies comprise, in the preferred embodiment, an object lens, an image lens, and a semi-rigid transparent layer between the lenses. The apparatus can be modified to provide three-dimensional viewing of a projected image such as that produced by a slide or movie projector by adding a specularly mirrored surface to the object lens and placing the apparatus at distance where the screen would normally be. Several methods of manufacturing the apparatus are disclosed.
(FR) Appareil servant à la visualisation tridimensionnelle d'une image bidimensionnelle générée à partir d'une vue unique telle que celle produite sur un écran de télévision ou une photographie. L'appareil comprend une rangée bidimensionnelle de dispositifs à lentilles placés de façon adjacente par rapport au plan de l'image bidimensionnelle. Les dispositifs à lentilles comprennent, dans le mode préféré de réalisation, une lentille d'objet et une lentille d'image, et une couche transparente semi-rigide placée entre les lentilles. L'appareil peut être modifié pour permettre la visualisation tridimensionnelle d'une image projetée, telle que celle produite à l'aide d'un projecteur de diapositives ou de cinéma, par adjonction d'une surface spéculaire à la lentille d'objet et, dans ce cas, l'appareil est placé à la distance à laquelle l'écran devrait normalement se trouver. L'invention concerne également plusieurs procédés de fabrication de l'appareil.
