Paper Abstract

In recent years, research on arbitrary view image generation using multi-cameras is attracting wide attention. The arbitrary view image generation technique is classified into Model-Based Rendering (MBR) and Image-Based Rendering (IBR). Here, we propose a new method based on IBR using MBR interpolation. This method has the concept which uses a model properly according to camera density, for interpolation IBR technology. Especially we showed the concrete realization method of the algorithm in the middle camera density. And, the computer simulation of arbitrary view image generation using our algorithm is performed. It is verified that this method is simple and useful to generate arbitrary view image at high speed. Moreover, algorithm was mounted in the system using PC cluster. The system using PC cluster has performed this algorithm in real time.
