Paper Abstract

Stereo imagery has been a goal in optics research since the invention of the stereoscope in 1834. While the market has been inundated with displays of various types, sizes, and formats, no general purpose, easy to use, inexpensive method for the display of imagery in stereo has been developed. The benefits of stereo vision are numerous and quickly become apparent when attempting to perform simple tasks without the aid of stereo cues. The proliferation of remotely operated vehicles and indirect view applications has resulted in an increased need to see the operational environment in stereo. Numerous approaches to the display of stereo imagery have been demonstrated. Stereoscopic displays typically require the user to wear special headgear. Autostereoscopic displays, so named because they do not require the headgear, typically have tight limitations on the position of the viewer’s head. Previous papers have described the theoretical underpinnings for new type of stereoscopic displayed based on dual liquid crystal displays. The new display provides a stereo view without temporal or spatial multiplexing. This paper will present the results from experiments to characterize the display components and the resulting changes in the encoding algorithm.
