Abstract

This three-dimensional display system uses only one camera. A right view image is projected onto the upper half of the tube of camera 10 by mirrors 12 and face 14 of prism 16. A left view image is projected onto the lower half of the tube by mirrors 18 and face 20 of prism 16. To prevent cross-illumination, baffle 22 extends from the tube to the vertex of prism 16.

Generating a 3D TV Signal with One TV Camera

This three-dimensional display system uses only one camera. A right view image is projected onto the upper half of the tube of camera 10 by mirrors 12 and face 14 of prism 16. A left view image is projected onto the lower half of the tube by mirrors 18 and face 20 of prism 16. To prevent cross-illumination, baffle 22 extends from the tube to the vertex of prism 16.

The vertical scanning rate of the camera is reduced from 60 cps to 30 cps. The area scanned during one vertical scan period includes both the left and right views. The synchronization pulse format and the receiver scanning rates remain unchanged from conventional TV practice.
