Polyfocal display is an interactive technique that allows to selectively zoom in a section of an image. Scaling is described by a (two–dimensional) magnification function, providing for generating several foci — each having induvidual magnification–parameters and correspondingly adjustable distortion in the regions further away from the focus.
