Abstract

The next step in stellar interferometry will be the transition from "pairwise interferometry" providing visibility measurements to direct imaging with large cophased multi-aperture interferometers. If the VLTI telescopes are cophased, Cerro Paranal becomes a unique site where direct imaging could be tested and validated, before the construction of larger cophased arrays as hypertelescopes or ELTs. For these reasons, a direct imager has been proposed for the next generation of VLTI instruments.
