The multitude of 3D displays, backward compatibility with 2D, and new free-view TV-services put higher requirements on flexible capture, efficient format integration, and necessitate an intelligent transmission for a final user satisfaction. 3D requires an optimized approach to the large amount of data to capture, to transfer and to display, much more than a 2D counterpart.
The project will address key issues for a qualitative production and transmission of 3D video, in particular:
- limitations and optimisation of capture of multiview 3D media, and
- coding algorithms and formats for compression and storage of 3D media enabling scalable and efficient transmission and a flexible presentation.
The project will result in new technology related to 3D that will lead to interoperable products, where new standards have a central role.
