Paper Abstract

A simple approach to achieving visually effective stereoscopic presentations on CRT display systems using electronically controlled shutters has been developed and refined. This method employs lead lanthanum zirconate titanate (PLZT) ceramics with dichroic polarizers as electro-optic shutters which are driven synchronously with the refresh rate of a CRT. The principal advantage of the approach presented here is the ease with which strong three-dimensional visual effects can be produced using basic stereoscopic viewing equipment in conjunction with standard video components or conventional computer-driven CRT display hardware. Applications of the basic PLZT electro-optic shutter stereoscopic video imagery generation technique to various display systems as well as methods of generating stereoscopic video and computer-driven display system imagery are presented.
