Paper Abstract

A very high resolution three-dimensional television system has been designed and fabricated for use in the remote manipulation of radioactive materials. The system includes a Stereo TV Camera and a Stereoscopic Display/Control Console, which provides a "live" display, or the picture can be video-taped for viewing at a later time. The Console is for individual viewing, group viewing is by means of projection. The Stereo TV Camera housing contains: a Stereo-Captor (beam splitter), zoom lens, TV camera head, built-in lights, and a pan and tilt. The Display/Control Console consists of: a TV monitor, Stereo-Hood (viewer), controls for camera, stereo, zoom lens, pan and tilt, illumination, audio, and a switcher. The stereo controls adjust convergence and permit a change from 2-D to 3-D. An audio system is included. The television system operates at 1023 TV scan lines, 32 MHz, thus providing a photographic quality stereoscopic image, which can be zoomed in 3-D. A very high resolution Stereoscopic Projection Display is available for group viewing. This consists of a cabinet containing: a very high resolution television monitor, polarized stereo optics, a non-depolarizing back projection screen; and 3-D polarized glasses for each viewer.
