Mr Anantha Krishnan
Currently evaluating the effectiveness of focus cues in stereoscopic 3D displays and content to determine the extent to which novel display technologies (light-field,gaze-contingent,multiple-focal-planes) present a natural focal stimulus to the eye, and the contribution this makes to the realistic appearance.
The project aims to specify:
• A set of required conditions for focal stimuli that are imperceptibly different from reality (such as the natural pattern of contrast changes with continuous changes in the eye's focal power )
• A set of methods for determining whether subjective aspects of depth appearance are similar to that derived from real scenes
• The contribution of focus cues to the realistic appearance in naturalistic scenes that contain a wide range of other sources of visual depth) information
