In recent years, the interest in 3D video communication end-to-end services is constantly increasing and has led to interactivity and 3D perception improvements in related applications, including Three-Dimensional Television (3D-TV) and Free Viewpoint Television (FTV). This particular method of delivering 3D visual information is, however, still a subject of intense research. My research strives to bring us closer to a new 3D experience, which is broadly achieved through 3D perception, high image quality and interactivity. My focus is on the design of 3D communication systems by addressing the question of “How 3D data should be represented and processed to reach a satisfactory 3D viewing and interactive experience?”.
In this presentation, I will introduce part of my research work that involves the need to: i) design a compact data representation of a 3D scene that enables interactivity, ii) efficiently compress and send the appropriate information that can address the bandwidth limitation, iii) develop a 3D rendering framework that is capable of reaching a satisfactory 3D viewing experience.
