Abstract

This paper introduces a stereoscopic video imaging modality based on a transparent rotating deflector (TRD). Sequential two-dimensional (2D) left and right images were obtained by rotating the TRD on a stepping motor synchronized with a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor camera, and the components of the imaging modality were controlled through general purpose input/output ports using a microcontroller unit. In this research, live stereoscopic videos were visualized on a personal computer by both active shutter 3D and passive polarization 3D methods. The imaging modality was characterized by evaluating the stereoscopic video image generation, rotation characteristics of the TRD. The level of 3D conception was estimated in terms of simplified human stereovision. The results show that single-channel stereoscopic video imaging modality has the potential to become an economical compact stereoscopic device as the system components are amenable to miniaturization; and could be applied in a wide variety of fields.
