Abstract:

THIS EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE A THREE DIMENSIONAL VIDEO DISPLAY SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT REQUIRE VIEWING APPARATUS (SPECIAL GLASSES, ETC.) AND IS COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING TV SYSTEMS. IT WILL USE A BASIC STEREOSCOPIC 3D TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT THE NEW SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE UNIQUE IMAGE PROCESSING THAT CORRECTS DEFECTS OTHERWISE INHERENT IN ALL SYSTEMS THAT DISPLAY STEREOSCOPIC IMAGES ON A FLAT SCREEN. THIS PATENTED (U. S. PATENT NUMBERS 4,567,513 AND 4,647,965) IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEM PROVIDES A NEW CONCEPT IN STEREOSCOPIC IMAGE PROCESSING (REFERRED TO AS GLOBAL CONVERGENCE PROCESSING) THAT IS DESIGNED TO COMPENSATE FOR FUNCTIONS THE VISION SYSTEM PERFORMS IN REAL LIFE BUT CANNOT PERFORM FOR STEREOSCOPIC DISPLAYS. THE EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A GLOBAL CONVERGENCE PROCESSING SYSTEM AND PRODUCE 3D VIDEO THAT CAN BE RECORDED AND DISPLAYED ON STANDARD TV EQUIPMENT AND OTHER MEDIA SUCH AS HIGH RESOLUTION VIDEO OR MOTION PICTURE EQUIPMENT. THE DEVELOPMENT WILL RESULT IN IMPROVED SIMULATION AND TRAINING SYSTEMS, ROBOTIC VISION SYSTEMS AND MAY LEAD TO BROADCAST QUALITY 3D TELEVISION AND SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED 3D MOTION PICTURES.
