Paper Abstract

Multi-view images visualized by autostereoscopic displays are a heavy load for networks. The amount of data which has to be stored and transmitted is huge compared to mono-view images. In this paper, we show, that the upcoming ITU-T H.264 standard, which is designed to compress moving pictures, is also suited to code multi-view images after some minor modifications. This upcoming standard is even capable of outperforming the best stereo image coders known so far. It is only lacking the ability to code multi-view images progressively, and it is missing the multi-resolution property of wavelet-based coders.
