abstract

Immersive stereoscopic imaging requires sharp wide field images, special software, and high resolution displays. Examples of some successful image capture, splicing, viewing, hosting, and posting techniques used in digital stereoscopic panoramic photography are given. Image capture uses camera movements that approximate natural eye positions reasonably well by using manual or motorized gimbal mounted systems designed for the purpose. Processing requires seamlessly stitching dozens or hundreds of images into left and right panoramas. Creating stereoscopic images over 50 mega pixels benefits from programmable motorized camera mounts. The 2 gig limit of TIFFs is often exceeded and requires the use of GigaPan.org hosting technologies. Gigapixel stereoscopic images are viewed as a single whole while many small files are quickly uploaded to improve the sharpness of the areas viewed and may be seen at 3d-360.com. Immersive stereo contents, active scrolling and deep zoom capabilities take stereoscopic photography from snapshots into the realm of immersive virtual presence when combined with modern web and display technologies. Scientific, artistic, and commercial applications can make effective use of existing stereoscopic displays systems by using these extended capabilities. © (2013) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
