We describe an architecture that provides a programmable display layer in order to allow the execution of custom programs on consecutive display frames. This replaces the default display behavior of repeating application frames until an update is available. The architecture is implemented using a multi-GPU system. We will show three applications of the architecture typical to VR. First, smooth motion is provided by generating intermediate display frames by per-pixel depth-image warping using 3D motion fields. Smooth motion can be beneficial for walk-throughs of large scenes. Second, we implement fine-grained latency reduction at the display frame level using a synchronized prediction of simulation objects and the viewpoint. This improves the average quality and consistency of latency reduction. Third, a crosstalk reduction algorithm for consecutive display frames is implemented, which improves the quality of stereoscopic images.
