Title: Towards Parallax-Based Unencumbered Displays Or "Designing a 3D display without glasses"

Abstract: We present an analysis of content adaptive parallax barriers used for multi-layer unencumbered displays. We explain the techniques involved in going from an input light field to a set of output masks and how to display them. The content adaptive parallax barrier masks are produced by decomposing a matrix, which is created by applying a set of constraints to the input light field, using non-negative matrix factorization. We compare a number of matrix factorization methods, including a novel technique developed in this work. We provide a detailed exploration of design parameters for the multi-layer display to produce proper auto-stereoscopic results.
