Checkerboard Stereo

Checkerboard stereo works by interleaving the left and right eye views on every other pixel in the display, in a checkerboard pattern. This type of stereoscopic display mode is compatible with a range of DLP projectors and TV's, in combination with shutter glasses. The only special requirements for the graphics accelerator are that it provide a stencil buffer which is used to generate the alternating columns in the final image. This mode is generally supported by low-cost gaming GPUs.
