An alternative method for digital holography using a quadrature phase-shifting interferometer for high-speed measurement is presented. We show that it has image quality equal to the four-bucket method. In addition, it requires fewer imaging devices. Two quadrature phase-shifting fringe patterns are acquired in each state of an object changed temporally. The phase calculation method with these four fringe patterns gives the phase distribution of the hologram. This digital phase hologram is reconstructed to yield an object image by the Fresnel transform using digital convolutions with the fast Fourier transform algorithm. Verification results of simulations and experiments are given.
