Paper Abstract

A technique has been developed and demonstrated to present full color stereoscopic imagery using standard projection display systems. This polarized color multiplexing technique (patent application filed) does not require additional image sources beyond those contained within the original 2-D display system. A full-resolution image is delivered to each eye, without increasing the video bandwidth of the original display. The approach separates the primary image colors between right eye and left eye views and uses polarization to alternate the colors every frame, thus generating a full color 3-D image on the projection screen. Any stereopair video source can be used, such as dual cameras, dual VCRs, or computer generated imagery. Either commercially available or custom threechannel projection systems (CRT, light valve, or laser) can be transformed into a stereoscopic display for group viewing.
