Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a novel 2D-to-3D conversion system based on visual attention analysis. The system was able to generate stereoscopic video from monocular video in a robust manner with no human intervention. According to our experiment, visual attention information can be used to provide rich 3D experience even when depth cues from monocular view are not enough. Using the algorithm introduced in the paper, 3D display users can watch 2D media in 3D. In addition, the algorithm can be embedded into 3D displays in order to deliver better viewing experience with more immersive feeling. Using visual attention information to give a 3D effect is first tried in this research as far as we know.
