Stereoscopic Image Processing*

Static images and dynamic image sequences are the projection of time-varying three-dimensional (3-D) real world scenes onto a two-dimensional (2-D) plane. As a result of this planar projection, depth information of objects in the scene is generally lost. Only by cues such as shadow, relative size and sharpness, interposition, perspective factors, and object motion, can we form an impression of the depth organization of the real world scene.
