Paper Abstract

There has been much research on many different aspects of image quality for 2D displays. These range from objective type metrics (e.g, luminance contrast, saturation contrast, resolution, etc.) to more subjective metrics (e.g,. "Rate the quality of the display from 1 - 5"), to metrics in between (subjective-objective) in which observers are asked to perform a task and their performance determines the "goodness" of the display. We would like to start identifying these similar types of metrics for 3D displays. In this case many of the traditional metrics do not work. We first discuss some of the more objective metrics including system specifications and measurable data. Secondly, we discuss both subjective (e.g., rating measures) and subjective-objective (e.g., experimental task) metrics that have been used in the past, and how well they may work for our situation. We also discuss developing new metrics of these types. We finally discuss what we feel is the way forward in the hopes of generating discussion for future research to help display manufacturers in their endeavors for designing new and innovative 3D displays.
