Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a multiview video and depth coding system for Multiview video applications such as 3DTV and Free View-point Television (FTV) 1. We target an appropriate multiview and depth compression method. And then we investigate the effect on free view synthesis quality by changing the transmission rates between multiview and depth sequences. In the simulations, we employ MVC in parallel to compress the multiview video and depth sequences at different bitrates, and compare the virtual view sequences generated by decoded data with the original video sequences taken in the same viewpoint. Our experimental results show that bitrates of multi depth stream has less effect on the view synthesis quality compared with the multi view stream.
