Sensitivity to peripheral artifacts in VR display systems

Proceedings of the Society for information display, Society for Information Display (2018), pp. 4


We evaluated the visual system’s sensitivity to different classes of image impairment that are closely associated with rendering in VR display systems. Even in the far periphery, the visual system was highly sensitive to volatile downsampling solutions. Temporally stable downsampling in the periphery was generally acceptable even with sample spacing up to half a degree.
