SECOND-MVD (Synthesis Error COmpeNsateD Multiview Video plus Depth) is an alternative 3D format that we introduce for representation of multiview video. In this data format, images at some viewpoint remain original, and the others are converted to a novel format. Residual based representation, such as layered depth video and free-viewpoint TV data unit were… (More)
We have conducted research into integral photography as a method of adapting 3D video to digital showcase. Since this method can recreate many depth cues, it possesses the possibility of fully recreating a lifelike impression of exhibits. We created a prototype that reproduced still images and were able to obtain full parallax reproduced images.
We have been conducting research on three-dimensional (3D) television using the integral imaging method. To enhance integral 3D image quality, Extremely High-Resolution (EHR) imaging technology would be essential. Now, projection display systems are practical for EHR images and have some advantages for 3D imaging. We theoretically and experimentally… (More)
