Paper Abstract

For the sake of providing 3D contents for up-coming 3D display devices, a real-time automatic depth fusion 2D-to-3D conversion system is needed on the home multimedia platform. We proposed a priority depth fusion algorithm with a 2D-to-3D conversion system which generates the depth map from most of the commercial video sequences. The results from different kinds of depth reconstruction methods are integrated into one depth map by the proposed priority depth fusion algorithm. Then the depth map and the original 2D image are converted to stereo images for showing on the 3D display devices. In this paper, a 2D-to-3D conversion algorithm set is combined with the proposed depth fusion algorithm to show the improved results. With the converted 3D contents, the needs for 3D display devices will also increase. As long as the two technologies evolve, the 3D-TV era will come as soon as possible.
