Paper Abstract

An improved technique for displaying stereoscopic moving images is described that makes for a more comfortable and enjoyable viewing experience by reducing the conflict of cues that occurs at the vertical edges of the screen surround when objects with negative parallax values are partially occluded. One such means for mitigating the vertical surround edge conflicts is given, in which the convergence of the camera fields is effectively altered to produce the zero parallax condition in the regions of the image immediately adjacent to the vertical edges of the screen surround. The transition is proportional to the proximity to the vertical edge and controlled proportionately. The net effect of this edge treatment is to allow for an increase in the projected image's parallax budget, thereby heightening the overall depth effect.
