Abstract

We have developed a new stereoscopic video system (the Q stereoscopic system) which has higher resolution at the central area than others. The Q stereoscopic video system is composed of four video cameras and four video displays. Two of the four cameras, to which wide-angle lenses are attached, are combined into a stereoscopic camera system. And the remaining two cameras, to which narrow-angle lenses are attached, are adjusted to have the same optical center axis as each of the wide-angle cameras. The Q stereoscopic display system is composed of two large video displays and two smaller video displays. The former receive images from the wide-angle stereoscopic cameras, and the latter receive images from the narrow-angle stereoscopic cameras. With this system, human operators can see wide stereoscopic compound images that have a high resolution center. In cases in which it is necessary to do detailed work with objects that scattered over a wide working space, the Q stereoscopic system is highly effective.
