Paper Abstract

Stereo permits recovery of information about the three-dimensional location of objects which is not contained in any single image. Various applications of techniqueswhere stereo play a primary or ancillary role include such areas as video display systems, human vision, computer vision, automatic tracking, and cartography. In this paper, we have selected the area of video display systems to provide an insight into the importance of stereo. The additional bibliography is to acquaint the non-specialist with this burgeoning field.
