We propose a stereoscopic display system for multiple users. It allows three or more people to simultaneously observe individual stereoscopic image pairs from their own viewpoints. The system tracks the position of the user's heads and it generates distortion-free images for each user. The system consists of a normal display and a display mask with a hole in the center. The display mask is placed at a suitable distance over the display surface. By controlling the position of the image drawing area for each user according to the corresponding user's viewpoint, each user can observe the stereoscopic image pairs shown in an individual area of the display system with shutter glasses. On the other hand, no user is able to see the image drawing areas of the other users because these areas are adequately occluded by the display mask. Accordingly, the display system can simultaneously provide intelligible 3D stereoscopic images for three or more moving observers without flickering or distortion.
