Patent Number: 8,089,506

Title: Image display apparatus and signal processing apparatus

Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for displaying to a viewer an image stereoscopically representing a three-dimensional object to be displayed. The apparatus includes: an emitter emitting light, having an intensity modulating section capable of intensity modulation for modulating an intensity of the light emitted from the emitter; a wavefront-curvature modulator capable of wavefront-curvature modulation for modulating a curvature of wavefront of the light emitted from the emitter; and a controller controlling the intensity modulation and the wavefront-curvature modulation, based on a luminance signal indicative of luminance of the image, and a depth signal indicative of depth of the image. The depth signal is a signal corresponding to depth data produced in a rendering process for the object to be displayed.
