|Real-time generation of multi-view video plus depth content using mixed narrow and wide baseline
|Content production for stereoscopic 3D-TV displays has become mature in the past years while huge progress has also been achieved in the improvement of the image quality of glasses-free auto-stereoscopic displays and light-field displays. Concerning the latter two display families, the content production workflow is less elaborated and more complex, as the number of required views not only differs considerably but is also likely to increase in the near future. As a co-existence of all 3D display families can be expected for the next years, one aims to establish an efficient content production workflow which yields to high quality content for all 3D-TV displays.
Against this background we present a real-time capable multi-view video plus depth (MVD) content production workflow based on a four-camera rig with mixed narrow and wide baseline. Results show the suitability of the approach to simultaneously produce high quality MVD4 and native stereoscopic 3D content
