Abstract
We consider the performance of two candidate approaches to compressing stereoscopic digital cinema distribution images: decorrelation transforms and disparity compensation. We show that disparity compensation generally can provide superior performance when significant disparity exists, and furthermore, that the consideration of vertical displacement can be an important factor in maximizing this performance under certain conditions. For context, we also provide details about the current state of both 2D and stereoscopic digital cinema distribution as of the end of the year 2007.
