Abstract
Designers, researchers, and users of binocular stereoscopic head- or helmet-mounted displays (HMDs) face the tricky issue of what imagery to present in their particular displays, and how to do so effectively. Stereoscopic imagery must often be created in-house with a 3D graphics program or from within a 3D virtual environment, or stereoscopic photos/videos must be carefully captured, perhaps for relaying to an operator in a teleoperative system. In such situations, the question arises as to what camera separation (real or virtual) is appropriate or desirable for end-users and operators. We review some of the relevant literature regarding the question of stereo pair camera separation using deskmounted or larger scale stereoscopic displays, and employ our findings to potential HMD applications, including command & control, teleoperation, information and scientific visualization, and entertainment.
