We proposed a three-dimensional holographic display technique without twin image noise by converting a complex hologram to an off-axis hologram. To implement the proposed technique we record the complex hologram of a three dimensional object that is composed of two slides located with different depth locations. We added spatial carrier to the complex hologram and after that, extract the real part of the spatial-carrier-added hologram. This converts the complex hologram to an off-axis hologram. We also reconstruct the off-axis hologram using a spatial light modulator for three dimensional display.
