Culminating a research and development project spanning many years, StereoGraphics Corporation has succeeded in bringing to market the first field-sequential electronic stereoscopic projector. The product is based on a modification of Electrohome and Barco projectors. Our design goal was to produce a projector capable of displaying an image on a six-foot (or larger) diagonal screen for an audience of 50 or 60 people, or for an individual using a simulator. A second goal was to produce an image that required only passive polarizing glasses rather than powered, tethered visors. Two major design challenges posed themselves. First, it was necessary to create an electro-optical modulator which could switch the characteristic of polarized light at field rate, and second, it was necessary to produce a bright green CRT with short persistence to prevent crosstalk between left and right fields. To solve the first problem, development was undertaken to produce the required electro-optical modulator. The second problem was solved with the help of a vendor specializing in high performance CRT's.
