Frontline Technology: Light-Field Imaging and Display Systems
Light-field imaging and display are often treated as separate areas, but at a conceptual level they are closely related. Display can be viewed as the reverse path of imaging, and this way of thinking can be helpful in the design of either type of system. This article offers a brief outline of both light-field imaging and display systems and a roadmap for their practical use going forward.

Frontline Technology: Advances in Head-Mounted Light-Field Displays for Virtual and Augmented Reality
Head-mounted light-field displays render a true 3D scene by sampling either the projections of the 3D scene at different depths or the directions of the light rays apparently emitted by the 3D scene and viewed from different eye positions. Head-mounted lightfield displays are capable of rendering correct or nearly correct focus cues and addressing the well-known vergence-accommodation mismatch problems of conventional virtual and augmented-reality displays.
