We propose a fast method for generating digital Fresnel holograms based on an interpolated wavefront-recording plane (IWRP) approach. Our method can be divided into two stages. First, a small, virtual IWRP is derived in a computational-free manner. Second, the IWRP is expanded into a Fresnel hologram with a pair of fast Fourier transform processes, which are realized with the graphic processing unit (GPU). We demonstrate state-of-the-art experimental results, capable of generating a 2048x2048 Fresnel hologram of around 4 x 10(6). object points at a rate of over 40 frames per second.
