SID is offering a free webinar - "User Issues in Stereoscopic 3D Displays". It will take place on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Daylight Time. The presented is Dr. Martin Banks, a vision scientist at Visual Space Perception Laboratory at UC Berkeley.
Dr. Banks will discuss the use of stereoscopic 3D displays in industry and impact on the user. In addition, he will discuss technical criteria relevant to effect use of stereoscopic 3D displays.
In this Webinar you will learn:
- A variety of user issues.
- The temporal protocols used in stereo 3D and how they affect perceived flicker, motion artifacts, and depth distortions
- Head roll, vertical eye movements, and visual discomfort
- Visual-vestibular conflict and nausea
- Vergence-accommodation conflict
- Vergence: the inward or outward turning movement of the eyes in convergence or divergence;
- Accommodation: the focusing of the eyes to make the image on the retinas sharp.
- Vergence and accommodation in natural viewing; coupling
- Vergence and accommodation in stereo displays
- Optometric measures of discomfort
- Evidence that vergence-accommodation conflict with stereo displays causes discomfort: blurry vision, tired eyes, and headache
- The effect of viewing distance
- The effect of the direction of the conflict (content in front of the screen or behind?)
- Maintaining comfort in different viewing situations
- Relating these findings to current practice
You'll be able to view the webinar here (on June 16).
