Paper Abstract

3D film and 3D TV are becoming reality. More facilities and devices are now 3D capable. Compared to capture 3D video content directly, 2D to 3D video conversion is a low-cost, backward compatible alternate. There also exists a tremendous amount of monoscopic 2D video content that are of high interest to be displayed on 3D devices with noticeable immersiveness. 2D to 3D video conversion, therefore, has drawn lots of attention recently. In this paper, a low complexity 2D to 3D conversion algorithm is presented. The conversion generates stereo video pairs by 3D warping based on estimated per-pixel depth maps. The depth maps are estimated jointly by motion and color cues. Subjective tests show that the proposed algorithm achieves 3D perception with acceptable artifact.
