Abstract

A new stereoscopic video system (the Q stereoscopic video system), which has high resolution in the central area, has been developed using four video cameras and four video displays. The Q stereoscopic camera system is constructed using own cameras with wide-angle lenses, which are combined as the stereoscopic camera system, and two cameras with narrow-angle lenses, which are combined (using half mirrors) with each of the wide-angle cameras to have the same optical center axis. The Q stereoscopic display system is composed of two large video displays that receive images from the wide-angle stereoscopic cameras, and two smaller displays projecting images from the narrow-angle cameras. With this system, human operators are able to see the stereoscopic images of the smaller displays inserted in the images of the larger displays. Completion times for the pick-up task of a remote controlled robot were shorter when using the Q stereoscopic video system rather than a conventional stereoscopic video system.
