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.
