In this paper we present experimental evidence of the redundancy of depth maps for 3D visualization. To this end, we performed a series of statistical experiments, devised to measure the effect of depth map quantization and the resolving power of 3D perception. The results of these tests show that for good 3D perception and 3D visualization, one does not need to use depth map of the same resolution neither with the same quantization as the original images. These results indicate that depth map based visualization can be based on low resolution, coarsely quantized, depth maps without significant degradation in the perceived 3D image.
