|Abstract||Most people were exposed to stereo displays through 3-D movies, which were the rage in the 1950s and now are enjoying a revival, thanks to the Imax process and animated films. Today, however, the technology has moved on to encompass a wide variety of applications beyond the entertainment venue. Stereo displays are being used as medical diagnostic tools, as an enabling technology for rapid prototyping of new products, for visualizing DNA and molecules, and for illustrating drill locations in oil exploration. Stereoscopic projection displays make it possible to visualize three-dimensional images. In the stereoscopic display process, two images of a scene – corresponding to the views from the left and right eyes – are projected onto a screen. The viewer wears special eyeglasses so that each image is seen only by the eye for which it is intended. The horizontal disparity between the two images is interpreted by the brain as 3-D information.|
