Paper Abstract

We examined the image quality, image clarity and viewing comfort of the 2D images rendered on a fixed 3D autostereoscopic display by using three different rendering schemes. Furthermore, opinions on the daily use of the content were asked. The display used in the study had a lenticular lens as a stereo structure, and both photos of natural scenes and artificial content were used as the test stimuli. Statistical analysis showed no significant differences between the different schemes. When images were divided into subgroups according to the amount of details, significant differences between image quality, image clarity, and viewing comfort scores were found. Moreover, the results indicate that increase in detail levels may decrease evaluated image quality, clarity and viewing comfort. Finally, for all experimental conditions better image quality, image clarity and more comfortable viewing experience had some positive influence on decisions of daily use. In conclusion, amount of details in the content seem to affect on the user experiences of 2D content shown on a 3D display.
