Disparity control plays an important role in 3D stereoscopic displays. It aims to produce high-quality 3D images and videos which can offer realistic visual experiences. We propose a disparity control method guided by stereoscopic visual attention. Firstly, the fundamental principle of disparity control is derived. Then, a stereoscopic visual attention model is introduced to get the key-point of disparity control. Finally, the disparity control for multiview images is conducted based on the stereoscopic visual attention model and the principle of disparity control. The experimental results on multiview sequences demonstrate that the proposed method is effective. The salient regions detected by the proposed stereoscopic visual attention model are displayed as the viewer's expectation, and the vivid 3D scenes are presented in autostereoscopic displays.
