3-D, and in particular stereoscopic, displays are believed to have great prospects. Due to imperfections in the optical and electronic components, however, some image distortions still exist in these displays. Among them, crosstalk is considered to be a very annoying one. The aim of the current research is to investigate crosstalk perception and its influence on image quality when rendering dynamic image sequences on two types of stereoscopic displays: a hold-type liquid-crystal display with patterned retarder and circular polarizing glasses, and an impulse-type digital light processing display with shutter glasses. Results show that the dynamic behavior of the displays has an impact on crosstalk perception. Perceived motion blur can mask crosstalk visibility, especially at low binocular parallax, which limits the crosstalk-induced image quality degradation.
