A field-sequential stereoscopic acquisition system based on off-the-shelf equipment and on in-house developed software for interpolating fields to interlaced frames is described. The software relies on object-based image analysis and the scheme is relatively robust for different types of scenes, including those with relatively fast motion and those with occluded and newly exposed areas. The off-the-shelf hardware consisted of a Sony DSR-PD1 with a Nu-View SX2000 Adapter. The adapter is a lens attachment that allows to views to be recorded: a view through the lens and a view displaced from the lens. Thus, a left-eye view is recorded in the odd (even) field and the right-eye view is recorded in the even (odd) field. After processing, the stereoscopic images could be played back at 120 Hz field rate and viewed without flicker and with smooth motion using standard electronic shutter glasses that are synchronized with the display of the odd and even fields.
