In autostereoscopic display systems which are based on lenticular, barrier, and lens array plates, the quality of perceived images is different in different regions of the viewing zone. In these systems, a visual image is a composition of several view images which depends on the current observer position. A quantification of the visual quality is suggested basing on the inverse number of different view images involved in a composed visual image. This definition of the quality can only be applied directly to the monoscopic seeing. A new method to estimate the quality value for binocular seeing is therefore devised. It is based on the mapping of different regions of the viewing zone onto a uniform map. The map is scanned by virtual probes "equipped" with single/dual sensors expressing observer's eyes for mono/stereo seeing. The virtual readings of both type probes can be represented in a matrix form giving very similar values for both cases. We found a generalized analytical solution which estimates the image quality as a coordinate-dependent function for both, monoscopic and stereoscopic cases. The generalized solution does not depend on the individual interocular distance.
