Resolution Enhancement by Vibrating Displays

Increasing display resolution by applying small vibrations to high-refresh-rate displays while rendering multiple low-resolution images. The viewer’s eye merges these images into a perceived high-resolution image.

Edge-Guided Resolution Enhancement in Projectors via Optical Pixel Sharing

The relationship of cost to resolution in digital projectors is super-linear. This proposed method uses light-modulator panels (LCD/DMD) of resolution nxn to create a perceptually close match to a cnxcn image, where c is 2 or 3, by using smaller pixels at the edges to enhance the resolution.

Tensor Displays: Compressive Light-Field Synthesis Using Multilayer Displays With Directional Backlighting

Introducing tensor displays: a light-field display family comprising all architectures using stacks of time-multiplexed, attenuating layers illuminated by uniform or directional backlighting and optimized with nonnegative tensor factorization. Tensor displays achieve greater depths of field, wider fields of view, and thinner enclosures, compared to prior automultiscopic displays.

Tailored Displays to Compensate for Visual Aberrations

Light-field displays to compensate for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, high-order aberrations, and cataracts. The goal is to free viewers from needing wearable optical corrections when looking at displays. The use of multiple depths to render each point of focus on the retina creates multi-focus, multi-depth displays.
