Free-Viewpoint Video from Depth Cameras

  title={Free-Viewpoint Video from Depth Cameras},

Depth cameras, which provide color and depth information per pixel at video rates, offer exciting new opportunities in computer graphics. We address the challenge of supporting free-viewpoint video of dynamic 3D scenes using live data captured and streamed from widely-spaced viewpoints by a handful of synchronized depth cameras. We introduce the concept of the depth hull, which is a generalization of the well-known visual hull. The depth hull reflects all the dense depth information as observed… Expand
