Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new stereoscopic 3D imaging communication system for real-time teleconferencing application is implemented by using IEEE 1394 digital cameras, Intel Xeon server computer system and Microsoft’s DirectShow programming library and its performance is analyzed in terms of image-grabbing frame rate. In the proposed system, two-view images are captured by using two digital cameras and processed in the Intel Xeon server computer system. And then, disparity data is extracted from them and transmitted to the client system with the left image through an information network and in the recipient two-view images are reconstructed and displayed on the stereoscopic 3D display system. The program for controlling the overall system is developed using the Microsoft DirectShow SDK. From some experimental results, it is found that the proposed system can display stereoscopic images in real-time with a full-color of 16 bits and a frame rate of 15fps.
