Paper Abstract

Integral imaging is a technology based on plenoptic photography that captures and samples the light-field of a scene through a micro-lens array. It provides views of the scene from several angles and therefore is foreseen as a key technology for future immersive video applications. However, integral images have a large resolution and a structure based on micro-images which is challenging to encode. A compression scheme for integral images based on view extraction has previously been proposed, with average BD-rate gains of 15.7% (up to 31.3%) reported over HEVC when using one single extracted view. As the efficiency of the scheme depends on a tradeoff between the bitrate required to encode the view and the quality of the image reconstructed from the view, it is proposed to increase the number of extracted views. Several configurations are tested with different positions and different number of extracted views. Compression efficiency is increased with average BD-rate gains of 22.2% (up to 31.1%) reported over the HEVC anchor, with a realistic runtime increase.
