Binocular Overlap

Binocular overlap refers to the overlap in vision between the two eyes of a stereoscopic vision system. In other words the shared space that can be seen by both points of view. When interfacing into a VR, this area is the area that will produce true stereoscopy.

Different amounts of binocular overlap are required on different stereoscopic user interfaces. If the majority of work is to be done at long distances, a lesser degree of binocular overlap ? and thus lesser hardware cost can be used. For close-up work, a high degree is mandated to achieve realism.
