Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe the background to, and our interest in, 3D imaging systems for improved video-telecommunications services. There have been two main thrusts: for video- telephony and for improving response in tele-operations or remote working situations where depth information is vital. We have built prototype demonstrations that offer enhanced presence and are comfortable to view. These demonstrations have been well received. These systems have become feasible because of the recent rapid improvements in display technologies. Further improvements in 3D image quality can be anticipated as the 2D display technologies continue to develop and as the benefit of these applications is transformed to user demand. We anticipate a growing requirement to provide the bandwidth for a range of 3D imaging applications operating over telecommunications networks.
