Integral imaging is a technology based on plenoptic photography that captures and samples the light-field of a scene through a micro-lens array. It provides views of the scene from several angles and therefore is foreseen as a key technology for future immersive video applications. However, integral images have a large resolution and a structure based on micro-images which is challenging to encode. A compression scheme for integral images based on view extraction has previously been proposed, with average BD-rate gains of 15.7% (up to 31.3%) reported over HEVC when using one single extracted view. As the eﬃciency of the scheme depends on a tradeoﬀ between the bitrate required to encode the view and the quality of the image reconstructed from the view, it is proposed to increase the number of extracted views. Several configurations are tested with diﬀerent positions and diﬀerent number of extracted views. Compression eﬃciency is increased with average BD-rate gains of 22.2% (up to 31.1%) reported over the HEVC anchor, with a realistic runtime increase.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
