motion parallax

One of the ways people perceive visual depth. As we move, all objects in the background appear to have little movement, while objects near us move the fastest and farthest.

In the last instance, the illusion of depth must depend on the use of 2-D cues such as occlusion, relative height, shading, linear perspective, texture gradient, and motion parallax.
Actualdepth monitors overcome many of the eye fatigue issues resulting from poor convergence, motion parallax, moire patterns, and restrictive viewing angles common to non-volumetric 3-D displays.
Our incredible ability to perceive depth through stereopsis, motion parallax, focus, and eye convergence is more reliable and useful than the visual cues present in current 2D displays using relative size, superposition, and lighting.
The prototype also features a wide stereoscopic viewing angle and NLT's multi-view technology with multi-camera data, which allows users to see multi-angle images with smooth motion parallax, providing a more realistic 3D viewing experience.
However, these results have not yet been verified for head-tracked virtual environments, in which head movements generate a powerful alternative visual depth cue called motion parallax.
Another unique feature of the Zecotek system is constant motion parallax within the viewing angle.
