Paper Abstract

With high definition video tools still out of reach for all but the best funded projects, there exists a need and a desire to maximize the usefulness of standard definition video for the creation of stereoscopic motion pictures. Through digital signal processing, NTSC video can be used to record progressive scan images of 720 x 480 resolution. The 960p system further enhances the quality of standard definition video as a stereoscopic production format. By utilizing two full resolution standard definition video streams, 960p allows the viewer’s brain to perceive even greater resolution. Dual progressive scan DVDs are employed along with dual DLP projectors and passive sheet polarizers. The system represents a breakthrough in cost and performance for stereoscopic motion picture production.
