MSU Device Testing - determination of the 3D devices’ characteristics: Participate
- Projects, ideas: Dr. Dmitriy Vatolin
- Implementation: Denis Sumin, Alexey Fedorov
Table of contents
You can help the project via testing a 3D device you have. You will receive a detailed report for the device. You will also get a map of 3D-perception quality per viewing position.
What should you do to help us?
- Inform us if you want to test your device. Additional information is very pleased to achieve best testing:
- the type of equipment (i.e., a system with two projectors using linear polarization technology; 28-views autostereoscopic display using only format 2D + Z)
- the model of equipment (i.e., Philips WowVX 42”)
- the screen resolution recommended by the producer (i.e., 3840×2160)
- You will receive response to the letter which will include:
- the detailed instructions how to perform the test
- the set of the test images that are designed specifically for your device
- You will need to attach special labels to the equipment. It is necessarily to determine camera position in automatic way (see for details into sent instructions).
- You will have to display test images (received from us before) in a full screen mode than you will have to take some photos of equipment from different locations.
- Send us the archive with captured photos. (you may want to use one of the public sharing services: Google Drive, Yandex Drive, Dropbox, etc.)
- Wait a few days and get the result of the test
- As a result — the world have become a little better!
Please, write explicitly if you really don’t want to publish in public the result of your device testing.
You can contact us at: 3DDeviceTest@graphics.cs.msu.ru
The things which may be required
- The device to be tested (you need to consider how to display the test images)
- A still camera and probably tripod
- Measuring devices i.e., tape measure
- A possibility to print the black and white labels
- A double-sided sticky tape
- Spacious room with preferable size more than 5m×5m
Tips how to capture your device
- Use the professional photographic equipment
- Use a tripod to avoid blur
- Take pictures with the 2-second delay self-timer to avoid blur
- Use a large diaphragm for taking high-clarity pictures even the focus is not enough correct
- Avoid glares on the device’s display during test, you may need to disable some lights
- Don’t use polarizing filters while capturing
- Codecs Comparison & Optimization
- Video Filters
