Abstract
THIS PROPOSED FULL FIELD OF VISION STEREOSCOPIC VIDEO SYSTEM DIFFERS SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ALL PREVIOUS STEREOSCOPIC VIDEO SYSTEMS IN TWO WAYS. FIRST; THE FIELD OF VIEW (FOV) PRESENTED TO THE VIEWER WILL BE AN UNDISTORTED 240 DEGREES HORIZONTAL AND 120 DEGREES VERTICAL OCCUPY-ING THE TOTAL VISUAL INPUT AVAILABLE TO THE OPERATOR AND, SECOND; WILLINCLUDE ALL ASPECTS OF VISUAL PERCEPTION EXCEPT ACCOMMODATION. THESE ARE ACCOMPLISHED BY A PROPRIETARY METHOD. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL SUBSTITUTE A REMOTE SENSOR AND A VIDEO DISPLAY FOR THE ENTIRE VISUAL REALITY OF THE OPERATOR, THEREBY GREATLY ENHANCING THE OPERATOR'S VIDEO MEDIATED PERCEPTION. AN OPERATOR THAT HAS THE WHOLE PICTURE WITHOUT OUTSIDE INFLUENCES, DISTRACTIONS, AND BIASES WILL BE ABLE TO MORE ACCURATELY PERFORM ALL THE POSSIBLE FUNCTIONS OF ANY REMOTELY OPERATED, OR SIMULATED, SYSTEM AS IF HE WERE THERE.
