Stereoscopic Imaging

This case study involves the development and implementation of novel algorithms that control the mapping of depth from a scene being imaged by a camera to an image being viewed on a stereoscopic display so as to make viewing more comfortable for the human visual system. The algorithms, developed at Durham University between 2003 and 2005:

  • are influential in the implementation of software tools supplied to the games industry;
  • have reportedly been widely adopted in the 3D movie industry; and
  • are used to produce award-winning 3D science movies that have been shown around the world and which have measurable and quantifiable public impact (nationally and internationally) in terms of both significance and reach.
