Paper Abstract

Included in an European Project about stereoscopic Imaging, a 3D pick-up equipment will be developed. This equipment represents an advance tool inasmuch as the goal is to build an automatic and motorized camera. The motorization of this equipment allows precise and remote controls. This is required to provide the large and symmetric adjustments for optics and the system. This means we modify the values of the optical and mechanical parameters (focal length, interaxial, angle of convergence) to provide optimal stereo pictures. Two kinds of functioning are planned. The first kind corresponds to preprogrammed values which regulate all parameters for an expected stereoscopic quality. The second kind allows the cameraman to be free in order to introduce special effects or test special condition to obtain psychophysical results. The image quality will correspond to the CCIR 601 standard for both channels.
