Side-by-side (SBS)

Side-by-side or SBS refers to a rendering method in which two separate camera recordings (often slightly different versions of the same recording) from a stereoscopic video are rendered in a single video file, with one recording mapped to the left eye and the other mapped to the right eye. On the viewer’s device, the two distinct images are directed individually to each eye to create the 3D effect.
