20 May 2011 3D video capturing for multiprojection type 3D display
Author Affiliations +
We have already developed glasses-free three-dimensional (3-D) displays using multi-projectors and a special diffuser screen that results in a highly realistic communication system. The system can display 70-200 inch large-sized 3-D images with full high-definition video image quality. The displayed 3-D images were, however, only computergenerated graphics or still images of actual objects. In this work, we studied a 3-D video capturing method for our multiprojection 3-D display. We analyzed the optimal arrangement of cameras for the display, and the image quality as influenced by calibration error. In the experiments, we developed a prototype multi-camera system using 30 highdefinition video cameras. The captured images were corrected via image processing optimized for the display. We successfully captured and displayed, for the first time, 3-D video of actual moving objects in our glasses-free 3-D video system.
