Paper Abstract

A dichoptic HMD vision system can provide an expansive and highly detailed visual experience by presenting a large FOV, lower quality image to one eye and a small FOV, higher quality image to the other. We compared a benchtop dichoptic vision system (DiVS) to a reference binocular system (RBS) using both subjective ratings and a performance test. Subjective ratings were directed at questions involving image quality, viewing comfort and presence or immersion. The performance test required observers to scan the scene to locate a target and then make an identification. Response times were collected for each component of this task. Target acquisition times were found to be much shorter for the DiVS condition while target identification times were longer. Total time to acquire and identify a target was found to be significantly shorter for a dichoptic system.
