Paper Abstract

Dimension Technologies Inc. has recently developed the first commercial implementation of an autostereoscopic head tracking display system. Utilizing proprietary and patented illumination technologies, the display system creates left and right viewing zones to the eyes of a viewer. A head tracking system is used to determine the position of the viewer, and control electronics adjust the illumination and LCD subsystems to display a correct stereo image for the current viewer position. This system requires rapid real-time processing and response by the subsystems in order to avoid visual artifacts during viewer head movement. System latency and update rates are critical factors in system performance. The research provides a clear demonstration of the near term feasibility for development of an autostereoscopic display exhibiting no visual artifacts due to viewer head position and/or movement.
