Practical experiments with stereo pairs show that an adequate stereoscopic image can be formed by the human brain even when one of the images is considerably defocussed or pixelated. In a digital data transmission, the reduced-definition image can have a bandwidth (pixels x palette size) as low as 1/48th that of the full-definition image. David Gibson suggests that this could have useful implications in the transmission of stereoscopic images over reduced bandwidth channels.
