Phase-only holographic projection has prompted a great deal of research and has
often been cited as a desirable method of 2-D image formation, since such a technique offers a
number of advantages over conventional imaging projection technology , . Although holographic image formation was demonstrated some forty years ago , efforts at realizing a real-time 2-D video projection system based on this
technique have not been successful, principally due to the computational complexity of
calculating diffraction patterns in real time and the poor quality of the resultant images. In
this paper, a new approach to hologram generation and display is presented which overcomes
both of these problems, enabling—for the first time—a high-quality
real-time holographic projector.
