Diminished Reality (DR) allows to remove objects from a video stream while preseving a frame to frame coherence. Some approaches apply a pseudo-DR, allowing for the removal of objects only, while their background can be observed by a second camera. Most real DR approaches are highly computational expensive, not even allowing for interactive rates and/or(More)
While image inpainting has recently become widely available in image manipulation tools, existing approaches to video inpainting typically do not even achieve interactive frame rates yet as they are highly computationally expensive. Further, they either apply severe restrictions on the movement of the camera or do not provide a high-quality coherent video(More)
While Augmented Reality has always been restricted to adding artificial content to the real environment, Diminished Reality allows for removing real world content. Existing approaches however, either require complex setups or are not applicable in real-time. In this paper we present our approach for removing real-world objects from a live video stream of(More)
Augmented video streams display information within the context of the physical environment. In contrast to Augmented Reality, they do not require special equipment, they can support many users and are location-independent. In this paper we are exploring the potentials of augmented video streams for remote participation. We present our design considerations(More)
It seems appropriate that the Cold Spring Harbor Genome Sequencing and Biology Meeting, which witnessed the creation of the Human Genome Organization (HUGO) in 1988, should this year present three major advances in genomic science: the completion of the ®nished sequence of Drosophila melanogaster; the announcement that 85% of the genome of Homo sapiens is(More)
