Book Description

This book provides a broad overview of research trends in 3D video and related technologies. The text was developed to meet the needs of a nontechnical reader group who desire to understand the issues, concerns, technical problems and their currently proposed solutions, and the interactions among different components of the entire 3DTV chain. Current state-of-the-art and research activities are presented, along with predicted research directions for the near, medium, and long term.
