Setting up a Stereoscopic Camera System
Near stereoscopic viewing has been the focus of this book. However, the math has been generated so that both near and far stereoscopic viewing can be analyzed with equal facility. For high-resolution, near stereoscopic viewing, stereoscopic depth distortions become significant. Many of the depth distortions discussed in this book may be removed or at least reduced as the convergence distance of the cameras increases. The methods for controlling the depth distortions require accurate adjustments of interviewpoint distance, convergence distance, and other system parameters. Thus the capabilities of the equipment and of the operators and the tasks they are required to perform determine the design of the stereoscopic rig.
