Because the invention of the stereoscope in 1830, stereoscopic 3D has remained at the leading edge of the media and leisure undefined. each 20 to 30 years, a brand new new release rediscovers stereo filmmaking, fueling its resurgence with extra twists brought via the technological developments of the intervening years. This encyclopedic dictionary deals a definitive compilation of knowledge at the paintings and technology of stereoscopic 3D, together with nonetheless and relocating photos; movie and electronic picture acquisition; construction, post-production, distribution, and exhibition; and human visible conception. as well as normal dictionary definitions, it comprises many prolonged encyclopedic entries and approximately three hundred black-and-white and colour illustrations. Taking the secret out of 3D's certain language, the paintings offers a foundation for transparent communique between execs and ancient context for these new to the self-discipline.

Sample text

The perceived depth in an image will increase if the distance to the screen or screen disparity increase or if the interocular distance decreases. Also, the perception of depth in a stereogram will change with the size of one’s head, or more specifically, the distance between one’s eyes (interocular or interpupillary distance). Images suitable for a child will seem unnaturally flat for an adult, while images optimized for viewing by the average adult will seem exaggerated to the average child. With the left- and right-eye conjugate points offset to the left and right of each other, the fused image appears to be beyond the screen (positive parallax).

Coined in 1957 by American social psychologist Leon Festinger. 2. The mental discomfort that may result from contradictory depth cues in a stereogram and the brain’s unconscious attempt to resolve them. — in this case, the design of stereoscopic recording and presentation systems and the production of stereoscopic works. coincident Occupying the same point in space.

Based on VQ techniques. Fractal compression is performed by locating selfsimilar sections within an image, then using a fractal algorithm to approximate each section. • Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). Mathematically transforms an image into frequency components before discarding those frequencies that do not affect the image as perceived by human vision. This is similar to how DCT operates, but in DWT the process is performed on the entire image at computational 36 the same time rather than first dividing it into smaller pieces.
