Abstract: The purpose of the research is to examine if advances in computer technology would facilitate the adoption of stereoscopic display systems. We examined and evaluated a variety of computer-based stereoscopic display technologies. We developed a stereoscopic image acquisition and projection system for use with a stereomicroscope. The projection system can also be used in conjunction with a set of stand-alone stereo cameras for more lifelike videoconferencing between collaborating scientists or for distance learning. The most important aspect of the performance of our projection system was producing near-perfect alignment. We adapted our projection system for remote operation over high-bandwidth networks, and successfully demonstrated this technology over Internet2. We expanded the operation of the system to include remote-control of the microscope.
