An Assessment of Visual Discomfort Caused by Motion-in-Depth in Stereoscopic 3D Video

  title={An Assessment of Visual Discomfort Caused by Motion-in-Depth in Stereoscopic 3D Video},
  author={Sang-Hyun Cho and Hang-Bong Kang},
The motion-in-depth is an important factor in measuring visual discomfort when watching stereoscopic 3D video since it changes accommodation and vergence at the same time. In this paper, we examine visual discomfort caused by motion-in-depth in terms of viewing time and display size in watching stereoscopic 3D video. The assessment methods for visual discomfort we used were a subjective test such as a questionnaire, and an objective test such as eye blink rate detection. The experimental… 
An analysis of brightness as a factor in visual discomfort caused by watching stereoscopic 3D video
Even though various research has examined the factors that cause visual discomfort in watching stereoscopic 3D video, the brightness factor has not been dealt with sufficiently. In this paper, we
Eye-movement Analysis for Measuring Visual Discomfort Caused from Watching Stereoscopic 3 D Video
Experimental results show that the blinking rate in eye movements gradually increases but saccadic number gradually decreases oppositely, while watching stereoscopic 3D videos.
Visual discomfort of stereoscopic 3D videos: Influence of 3D motion
Visual Discomfort in 3DTV: Definitions, Causes, Measurement, and Modeling
This chapter discusses the phenomenon of visual discomfort in stereoscopic and multi-view 3D video reproduction. Distinctive definitions are provided for visual discomfort and visual fatigue. The
The influence of 3D video artifacts on discomfort of 302 viewers
A method of automatic subjective quality evaluation that uses technical parameters of stereoscopic scenes, based on subjective scores and brain-activity measurements using electroencephalography (EEG) to assess viewer discomfort is proposed.
A New Visual Comfort-Based Stereoscopic Image Retargeting Method
Experimental results show that the proposed stereoscopic image retargeting method is efficient and offers more user-friendly retargeted results than previously proposed methods.
The effects of fast disparity adjustment in gaze-controlled stereoscopic applications
It is found that gaze-controlled manipulation of disparities can lower fusion times for large disparities and should be applied in a personalized manner and ideally performed only at the extremities or outside the comfort zone of subjects.
Assessing the Quality of Experience of 3DTV and Beyond: Tackling the Multidimensional Sensation
The chapter dives into the complexity of this subject by explaining the QoE concept using 3DTV as an example, and explains the meaning of the different scales, the current approaches to assess each of them, and the individual influence factors related to the voting which affects reproducibility of the obtained results.
The Effects of Cinematic Virtual Reality on Viewing Experience and the Recollection of Narrative Elements
Abstract Cinematic virtual reality offers 360-degree moving image experiences that engage a viewer's body as its position defines the momentary perspective over the surrounding simulated space. While
Enhancing Audience Engagement Through Immersive 360-Degree Videos: An Experimental Study
The results show that an audience’s viewing experience in an immersive environment is influenced by the joint effects of display types and viewport dynamics, contributing to resolving previous inconsistent findings regarding the effect of immersive technology on audience engagement.


Visual Discomfort and Visual Fatigue of Stereoscopic Displays: A Review
The importance of various causes and aspects of visual discomfort is clarified and three-dimensional artifacts resulting from insufficient depth information in the incoming data signal yielding spatial and temporal inconsistencies are believed to be the most pertinent.

This paper quantified viewer discomfort by measuring eye blinking rates using an eye tracker system, and estimated the user's eyestrain by integrating theEye blinking rates with user's subjective test responses when watching stereoscopic 3D content in relation to binocular disparity, viewing time and display size.
Effect of disparity and motion on visual comfort of stereoscopic images
The results indicate that change in disparity magnitude over time might be more important in determining visual comfort than the absolute magnitude of the disparity per se, and suggest that rapid switches between crossed and uncrossed disparities might negatively affect visual comfort.
Visual discomfort of 3D TV: Assessment methods and modeling
Two factors in visual fatigue caused by stereoscopic HDTV images
It is found that when stereoscopic HDTV images were displayed within the corresponding range of depth of focus, and remained static in the depth direction, the degree of visual fatigue was almost the same as that induced by watching images displayed at the depth of the screen.
Visual comfort assessment metric based on salient object motion information in stereoscopic video
A novel visual comfort assessment metric framework that systematically exploits human visual attention models is proposed that quantifies the level of visual discomfort caused by fast salient object motion.
Visual comfort of binocular and 3D displays
The study experimentally determined the level of (dis)comfort experienced by 24 subjects for short presentations of a wide range of binocular image imperfections, finding how nearly all binocular asymmetries seriously affect the visual comfort if present in a large enough amount.
Viewing comfort with stereoscopic pictures : an experimental study on the subjective effects of disparity magnitude and depth of focus
A wide range of binocular disparity and depth-of-focus conditions and the high consistency of the observed response patterns suggests a stable perceptual mechanism.
Accommodative responses to stereoscopic three-dimensional display.
Experimental examination of the accommodative responses to a stereoscopic 3-D display found that accommodation was elicited by convergence and moved to the stereoscopic distance of the 3-D image.
