An analysis and comparison of the lateral and the depth resolution in the reconstruction of 3D scenes from images obtained
either with a classical two view stereoscopic camera or with an Integral Imaging (InI) pickup setup is presented.
Since the two above systems belong to the general class of multiview imaging systems, the best analytical tool for the
calculation of lateral and depth resolution is the ray-space formalism, and the classical tools of Fourier information
processing. We demonstrate that InI is the optimum system to sampling the spatio-angular information contained in a
3D scene.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
