"Hyperstereo" refers to a stereo image which uses a larger than normal stereo base (the distance between the left and right lenses). Recall that "normal" image separation is about 65 mm, so anything further apart than this is, by definition, hyperstereo.

Usually this is obtained by using two camera separated by a greater than normal distance, or by using a single camera, making two images separated by more than the normal distance. Depending on the subject, this distance can be tens or even humdreds of feet apart. This gives a stereo effect to objects which are far enough away that normally you would perceive no depth.

Here are some hints for playing with hyperstereo:
