In this study investigated the effect of the frame design of a simple smartphone HMD on the stereoscopic vision and considered the design requirements for comfortable viewing environment. We mainly focused on the lens spacing used in screen enlargement and extension of the focal length. To investigate the differences in the fusional limit attributable to lens spacing, three HMDs with left/right eye-lens spacing of 57.5, 60, and 62.5 mm were utilized. When the three types of HMD and display were compared, the positive and negative direction fusional limits were closer than the display for all HMDs. In particular, that of 62.5 mm condition was shifted to significantly close in comparison with the control condition. The results showed a trend that the fusional range becomes narrow in a simple HMD.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
