Abstract

Dual view displays allow two users to collaborate on the same task. Specialized computer systems have been designed to provide each user with a private view of the scene. This paper presents two hardware configurations that support independent stereo viewing for two users sharing a common display. Both prototypes are built using off-the-shelf parts: a 120Hz computer monitor and a 120Hz projector. The result is a functional, responsive and inexpensive dual-view 3D stereo display system where both viewers see stereo on the same display. We demonstrate our systems’ features with three demos: a competitive game, where each user has a private stereoscopic view of the game table; a two-user multimedia player, where each user can watch and hear a different stereoscopic video on the same display and a head-tracked dual stereo 3D model viewer that provides each user with a correct perspective of the model. The latter demostrator also provides basic gesture-based interaction.
