Currently under development high fidelity and interactive full parallax light field displays have unique and challenging requirements due to human factors and space constraints imposed on them. A high fidelity light field display with no vergence accommodation conflict and desktop size foot print implies a display with tens of gigapixels and pixel pitch in the range of 10 microns or below. Achieving interactive image and video display performance on these types of displays requires a fundamental redesign of the display input interface and image processing pipeline. In this paper, we discuss various ways of addressing these issues with light field compression and display system design innovations.
