Whitepaper On Exemplar 3D Display Techniques

By Dr. Barry G. Blundell, Auckland University of Technology

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) display techniques offer to serve a broad spectrum of distinctly different functions and may be implemented in numerous ways. Furthermore, although today’s 3D systems invariably capitalise on binocular vision (specifically stereopsis) this is not the only visual mechanism by which we are able to gain a strong sense of form and spatial positioning across three physical dimensions. Consequently, the formulation of a single, all embracing, and clear-cut description of the fundamental essence of the 3D display paradigm is not entirely straightforward. Perhaps the most obvious approach is to consider 3D displays as supporting image depiction techniques able to present synthetic spatial content in ways that are consistent with our natural perception of the 3D world in which we live. However, when considered in the context of scalable approaches able to operate satisfactorily across a broad range of applications, this seemingly simple objective is far from trivial. In this document, various useful terminology is briefly summarised, and this provides a framework for introductory discussion on a number of 3D paradigms and their application. [more...]
