    Abstract

    The paper reports the hitherto obtained results of the research project that deals with scene representations that are suitable for free navigation around the scene. These scene representations are acquired from a limited number of cameras located around the scene. The project is aimed at the development of an efficient compression technology and the experimental environment for testing such technology. The paper reports some new multiview test sequences with the circular camera arrangement, including the hybrid ones that have been acquired using also the depth sensors. Finally, the paper also briefly reports the recent results of the new compression technology being under development. This technology outperforms the state-of-the-art 3D-HEVC.

    Abstract

    We propose a new coding technology for 3D video represented by multiple views and the respective depth maps. The proposed technology is demonstrated as an extension of the recently developed high efficiency video coding (HEVC). One base views are compressed into a standard bitstream (like in HEVC). The remaining views and the depth maps are compressed using new coding tools that mostly rely on view synthesis. In the decoder, those views and the depth maps are derived via synthesis in the 3D space from the decoded baseview and from data corresponding to small disoccluded regions. The shapes and locations of those disoccluded regions can be derived by the decoder without any side information transmitted. To achieve high compression efficiency, we propose several new tools such as depth-based motion prediction, joint high frequency layer coding, consistent depth representation, and nonlinear depth representation. The experiments show high compression efficiency of the proposed technology. The bitrate needed for transmission of two side views with depth maps is mostly less than 50% than that of the bitrate for a single-view video.

    Abstract

    An image coding method. The method includes encoding a first image, the first image having a reduced spatial resolution relative to an input image, wherein values of the first image depend on energy of corresponding areas of the input image, and encoding a first shape information of the shape of a spatial spectrum of the input image. The method further includes reconstructing a second image from the encoded first image, reconstructing a second shape information from the encoded first shape information, and generating a noise image having an intensity described by the second image and having a spectrum shape described by the second shape information.
