Paper Abstract

Binocular disparity is used on field-sequential stereoscopic displays to enhance monocular depth cues such as perspective, shading, shadows, and interposition. While the predicted apparent depth may be calculated using geometric equations, the actual apparent depth may not follow predictions due to the influence of accommodation and convergence. A study was performed to determine the effect of viewing distance on subjective rating of apparent depth. Viewing distance significantly influenced subjective depth ratings. Displayed objects viewed from greater distances (2678 mm) portrayed greater differences in depth than equivalent displayed scenes viewed from smaller distances (669 and 1339 mm).
