“A digital hologram is recorded by a 2D CCD array by superposition of the wavefield reflected or scattered from a scene and a coherent reference wave. If the recorded digital hologram is fed to a spatial light modulator (SLM) and this is illuminated by the reference wave, then the whole original wavefield can be reconstructed. The reconstructed wavefield contains phase and intensity distributions, which means it is full 3D, exhibiting such effects as depth and parallax. Therefore, the concept of digital holography is a promising approach to 3D-TV. In one of our previous works the preliminaries of an all-digital-holographic approach to 3D-TV were given. Here one of our approaches is experimentally verified and its capabilities and limitations are investigated.”
