Abstract: Methods and systems are presented in which at least one geometric distortion function is separately determined for application to a particular primary color component of a color video display to cause a geometric distortion that compensates for lateral chromatic aberration in an optical system used to view the display.

First Claim:
Show all 25 claims
We claim:     1. A method for correcting a chromatically variant optical aberration of an optical system interposed in a display system between a viewer eye position and a display surface of a color video display device to form a virtual image of the display surface, comprising the steps of:
  • providing color component image display control signals for a plurality of color components of an image to be displayed by the color video display device on the display surface;
  • defining a distortion function for a particular color component of the color video display device based on the chromatically variant optical aberration of the optical system; and
  • differentially transforming the color component image display control signals by applying the distortion function to a color component image display control signal for the corresponding particular color component to introduce chromatically variant distortion in the image displayed on the display surface that compensates for the optical chromatic aberration of the optical system in the virtual image.
