Working Towards Developing Human Harmonic Stereoscopic Systems

  • Masaki Emoto

We human beings want to see and hear what happens not only before our very eyes, but also at distant places in the world or outer space, including past events. Although we can now see images and hear sounds using electric equipment (i.e., a television set), displayed images are generally flat and have no depth. We want exciting simulated experiences that we cannot experience in daily life, where we can feel as though distant or recorded events happen before our very eyes. Stereoscopic three-dimensional (3-D) images enable us to experience the sensation of depth and to feel as though we are in the space shown by the stereoscopic video system. This feeling is called the sensation of “presence” or “being there.” Generating the sensation of presence is one of the major purposes of various image systems. It is very effective to increase the sensation by enlarging the field of view of the video display, and by presenting depth information. Stereoscopic 3-D television is considered a...
