Paper Abstract

This paper presents two novel end-to-end stereo video compression pipelines consisting of single-sensor digital camera pairs, the legacy consumer-grade video decoders, and anaglyph displays. As 3D videos contain a large amount of data, efficient compression methods to distribute streams over the current communication infrastructure are highly required. In addition, low computation complexity algorithms to reconstruct the 3D scenes using the existing hardware are also preferred. We proposed two methods to transmit a single encoded stream containing only required data to create anaglyph video from single-sensor camera pairs. Our first proposed method packs and encodes only the required demosaicked color channels used in the anaglyph display in YCbCr 4:4:4 format, whereas the second proposed method repacks the color filter array stereo image pairs into the legacy video format YCbCr 4:2:0 mono and leaves the demosaicking operations at the decoder side. The experimental results demonstrate the superior performance of our proposed methods over the traditional one by achieving up to 4.66 dB improvement in terms of Composite Peak-to-Signal Noise Ratio (CPSNR).
