Paper Abstract

The Vision IIITM method of parallax scanning has been successfully achieved using a moving optical element (MOE) in a single lens. Unlike the lenses in our previous custom camera systems, the MOE lenses do not move. Instead, an optical element inside the lens scans a scene in a complete circle while the lens position remains fixed. V3TM MOE lenses have been effectively applied to 35 mm motion picture and broadcast video imaging. Images shot with a MOE lens provide a strong sense of dimension, realism, and stability. They can be displayed using standard motion picture projection or broadcast television equipment without the need for special screens or glasses.
