The paper presents the numerical and experimental results of reconstructing images from a spatially segmented Fourier hologram with additional carrier frequencies, acting as a translucent head-up display (HUD). Successful reconstructions of colorful images visible at the infinity were achieved. The design procedure is described and some limitations of the method are discussed, like the appearance of ghost images. Exemplary results from numerical and real experiments are given. In order to obtain color images three beams of primary colors were successfully utilized to create a color mixture.
