We propose the 'Dynamic Dimension' system that enables simultaneous viewing of 3D and monoscopic content on glasses-based stereo displays (e.g. CRT, Plasma, LCD). A viewer can choose to wear glasses and see content in 3D, or he may decide not to wear glasses, and see high-quality monoscopic content. The Dynamic Dimension system is based on simple image processing such as addition and subtraction. The input images can be captured by a triple camera setup or be rendered from so-called RGBD video, an ad-hoc standard for 3D video. From several subjective tests, we conclude that Dynamic Dimension produces a very much present and appealing 3D effect, while the monoscopic image quality remains high and totally unaffected.
