Abstract : A geometrical model describing retinal disparities produced by stereoscopic (stereo) TV systems is experimentally tested for various configurations of camera separation and magnification. Operator visual fatigue is also measured. Although varying configurations affect perceptual performance, they do not affect it in a manner consistent with the simple geometrical model. Observers appear capable of perceptual adaptation, benefitting from enhanced disparities when they are available. No differences in visual fatigue were found for any of the camera configurations tested. (Author)
