Paper Abstract

Among the 3D stereoscopic cameras to acquire the stereo views, the parallel-axis stereo camera is considered as the simplest one of binocular stereo cameras. However, it is not able to control vergence since its left and right imaging sensors are fixed. In order to overcome such limitations of the stereoscopic cameras, we propose a parallel-axis stereoscopic camera that has functions for the vergence control and video multiplexing simultaneously, which can be implemented by simple and real-time processing without image deterioration. In this paper, we simulate the effects of the vergence control according to the proposed methods, which is accomplished by the over-sampling at ADC and extracted disparity with help of multiplexing function. It is confirm that the processed stereoscopic images by the proposed PASC are very comfortable for viewing on the 3D display within a limited disparity range.
