  • Publication number: 20210152804
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, apparatus, methods, and articles of manufacture to present three dimensional images without glasses. An example apparatus includes a micro lens array and at least one processor. The at least one processor is to: determine a first position of a first pupil of a viewer; determine a second position of a second pupil of the viewer; align a first eye box with the first position of the first pupil; align a second eye box with the second position of the second pupil; render, for presentation on a display, at least one of a color plus depth image or a light field image based on the first position of the first pupil and the second position of the second pupil; and cause backlight to be steered through the micro lens array and alternatingly through the first eye box and the second eye box.

  • Patent number: 10948740
    Abstract: An example apparatus for displaying stereo elemental images includes two coupled eyepieces. Each of the two eyepieces also includes a curved screen to display a number of elemental images. Each of the two eyepieces also includes a curved lens array concentrically displaced in front of the curved screen to magnify the elemental images. Each of the number of elemental images is magnified by a different lens in the curved lens array.

  • Patent number: 10939085
    Abstract: In some examples, a three dimensional display system includes a display (for example, a display screen or a display panel), a micro lens array, and an eye tracker to track one or more eyes of a person and to provide eye location information. The display system also includes a rendering processor to render or capture color plus depth images (for example, RGB-D images) or light field images. The display system also includes a light field processor to use the eye location information to convert the rendered color plus depth images or light field images to display images to be provided to the display.

  • Patent number: 10701282
    Abstract: A plurality of frames of a video recorded by a video camera and depth maps of the plurality of frames are stored in a data storage. One or more target video camera positions are determined. Each frame of the plurality of frames is associated with one or more of the target video camera positions. For each frame, one or more synthesized frames from the viewpoint of the one or more target camera positions associated with that frame are generated by applying a view interpolation algorithm to that frame using the color pixels of that frame and the depth map of that frame. Users can provide their input about the new camera positions and other camera parameters through multiple input modalities. The synthesized frames are concatenated to create a modified video. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20180199028
    Abstract: In one example, a head-mounted display (HMD) device includes multiple display panels arranged in parallel with each other. Each of the display panels is associated with one of multiple focal lengths. The HMD device includes multiple lenses to view a three-dimensional (3D) scene on the display panels. The HMD device also includes a controller to provide a frame of the 3D scene, viewable at the focal lengths. The frames include focal layers generated at one of the focal lengths. The frames are rendered by displaying the focal layers in a sequence on the display panels associated with the focal length at which the focal layer is generated. The controller also allows visible light to pass through one or more of the display panels based on whether the render planes are between an active focal layer and the lenses.

  • Patent number: 9998723
    Abstract: Techniques related to filling hole regions in a disparity map are discussed. Such techniques may include generating approximated disparity values for grid nodes of an approximation grid having a lower resolution than the disparity map based on disparity values within outer hole contour regions circumscribing the hole regions. The hole regions may be filled with upsampled disparity values based on the approximated disparity values to provide a final disparity map.

  • Patent number: 9582858
    Abstract: Anti-aliasing methods and systems may include logic to conduct a vertical blending weight determination based on horizontal pixel data associated with an image, and conduct a horizontal blending weight determination based on vertical pixel data associated with the image. Additionally, the logic may modify the image based on the vertical blending weight determination and the horizontal blending weight determination, wherein the vertical pixel data is excluded from the vertical blending weight determination, and the horizontal pixel data is excluded from the horizontal blending weight determination.

  • Publication number: 20150348319
    Abstract: Methods and systems may provide for creating a non-uniform mesh for a first image, the non-uniform mesh including a plurality of vertices that align with one or more boundaries in the first image. Additionally, sample data associated with at least the first image may be obtained, wherein the sample data corresponds to the plurality of vertices. In one example, a second image is synthesized based at least in part on the sample data, wherein synthesizing the second image includes rendering one or more areas that are un-occluded in the second image and are occluded in the first image.
