Paper Abstract

A new evaluation method of visual wide-field effects using human postural control analysis is proposed. In designing a television system for future, it is very important to understand the dynamic response of human beings in order to evaluate the visual effects of displayed images objectively. Visual effects produced by 3-D wide-field images are studied. An observer's body sway produced by postural control is discussed using rotating 2-D and 3-D images. Comparisons between stationary and rotating images are also performed. A local peak appears in power spectra of the body sway for the rotating images (3-D and 2-D). On the other hand, no distinctive component appears in the power spectra for the stationary images. By extending the visual field, the cyclic component can be proved from the audio-correlation function of the body sway for the rotating images. These results suggest that displayed images induce the postural control. The total length of the body sway locus is also analyzed to evaluate the postural control. The total length for the rotating images increases in proportion to viewing angles, and is nearly saturated after 50 (deg). Moreover, it is shown that the total length for the rotating 3-D image is greater than for the rotating 2-D image.
