A comprehensive guide to the technologies and techniques used to enable computer–processed images to occupy a 3–D space This authoritative book focuses on the technologies and techniques that may be used to enable computer–processed images to occupy a three–dimensional (3–D) space. Images depicted in this way take on many of the attributes that we associate with the traditional sculptured image and naturally satisfy a range of pictorial, oculomotor, and binocular depth cues, thereby avoiding depth cue conflict and viewing discomfort. In addition, this opens up exciting opportunities that exist for the development of new interaction tools and techniques. Enhanced Visualization provides a refreshing and wide–ranging insight into approaches for radically advancing our communication with the digital world. Content includes: Discussion of a broad range of creative 3–D display system techniques An extensive background review of volumetric systems A chapter devoted to research undertaken in connection with varifocal systems Identification of various types of image space Consideration of interaction opportunities offered by different forms of image space The impact of different display modalities upon graphics engine hardware and software Suggestions for technologies and techniques that warrant significant research efforts A comprehensive range of references A transdisciplinary approach makes the content accessible to a wide–ranging audience. This book will be of great value to undergraduate and graduate students, to researchers involved in advancing interaction with the digital world, and also to those involved in investing in new forms of computer interaction technologies.
