Existing high-resolution monitors are optimized for display of non-stereoscopic images with field refresh rates of 60 to 80 hertz. Almost all existing graphics systems utilize refresh rates in this range. Stereoscopic field-sequential displays present alternate left and right images, with each eye seeing half the displayed fields by use of electronic shuttering systems. This image selection is accomplished by optical shutters that are alternately clear and opaque operating synchronously with the display. To maintain flicker-free display for each eye requires at least the doubling of the existing field rate. An idealized monitor for stereoscopic display adds several new demands on the performance of monitors that extend beyond existing requirements. Some of the new requirements may be contrary to existing needs, calling for engineering compromises to be considered. The paper addresses the electronic and perceptual requirements of stereoscopic monitors in the areas of scan ranges, phosphors, and interfaces. Success in utilizing existing commercial monitors and projectors and possible future directions are discussed.
