In this paper we propose a hardware capture system for the generation of layered depth video content, and realtime feedback mechanismus required to ensure optimal data acquisition for 3DTV productions. The capture system consists of five color cameras and two time of flight cameras. The time of flight cameras allow direct depth measurements and thus help to overcome difficulties of classical stereo matching. However they suffer from low resolution and must be combined with stereo to achieve acceptable results in a post production process. Realtime previews are hence necessary, so that a dynamic adaption of the scene as well as the capture parameters becomes possible, and a good data quality can be assured.
