Recently various types of curved integral imaging system have been reported for improvement of viewing angle. However, the optical implementation has been limited to only unidirectional system. In this paper, we propose a curved integral imaging (CII) system with additional use of a large-aperture ten in conventional II system and explain a generation scheme of elemental images in the proposed system. The proposed system provides full-directional curvature effect and has simple structure due to the use of well-fabricated flat devices. For the full-directional-curved II system, we perform my analysis based on Johns matrix and synthesize novel elemental images. To show the usefulness of synthesized elemental images, preliminary experiments were performed and some experimental results were presented.
