Three-dimensional television (3DTV) is believed to be the future of television broadcasting that would replace current 2D HDTV technology. Future 3DTV would bring a more life-like and visually immersive home entertainment experience, in which users will have the freedom to navigate through the scene to choose a different viewpoint. A desired view can be(More)
In this paper we propose a new approach for disocclusion removal in depth image-based rendering (DIBR) for 3D-TV. The new approach, Hierarchical Hole-Filling (HHF), eliminates the need for any preprocessing of the depth map. HHF uses a pyramid like approach to estimate the hole pixels from lower resolution estimates of the 3D wrapped image. The lower(More)
In this paper, we present a new method for objectively evaluating the quality of stereoscopic 3D videos generated by depth-image-based rendering (DIBR). First we show how to derive an ideal depth estimate at each pixel value that would constitute a distortion-free rendered video. The ideal depth estimate will then be used to derive three distortion measures(More)
We propose a method to reconstruct the depth map from multiple estimated depth maps relying on monocular cues. Based on extracted depth cues from luminance, chrominance, motion and texture, we obtain an optimal depth estimation by analytically deriving the best combinations. We first analyze a ground truth depth map to extract a set of depth cues. Then,(More)
In this paper, we propose a method to extract depth from motion, texture and intensity. We first analyze the depth map to extract a set of depth cues. Then, based on these depth cues, we process the colored reference video, using texture, motion, luminance and chrominance content, to extract the depth map. The processing of each channel in the Y CRCB−color(More)
Although several subjective and objective quality assessment methods have been proposed in the literature for images and videos from single cameras, no comparable effort has been devoted to the quality assessment of multicamera images. With the increasing popularity of multiview applications, quality assessment of multicamera images and videos is becoming(More)
