Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new software-oriented autostereoscopic 4-view imaging & display system for web-based 3D image communication is implemented by using 4 digital cameras, Intel Xeon server computer system, graphic card having four outputs, projection-type 4-view 3D display system and Microsoft' DirectShow programming library. And its performance is also analyzed in terms of image-grabbing frame rates, displayed image resolution, possible color depth and number of views. From some experimental results, it is found that the proposed system can display 4-view VGA images with a full color of 16bits and a frame rate of 15fps in real-time. But the image resolution, color depth, frame rate and number of views are mutually interrelated and can be easily controlled in the proposed system by using the developed software program so that, a lot of flexibility in design and implementation of the proposed multiview 3D imaging and display system are expected in the practical application of web-based 3D image communication.
