A depth dilation filter is proposed for free viewpoint video system based on mixed resolution multi-view video plus depth (MVD). By applying gray scale dilation filter to depth images, foreground regions are extended to background region, and synthesis artifacts occur out of boundary edge. Thus, objective and subjective quality of view synthesis result is improved. A depth dilation filter is applied to inloop resampling part in encoding/decoding, and post processing part after decoding. Accurate view synthesis is important in virtual view generation for autostereoscopic display, moreover there are many coding tools which use view synthesis to reduce interview redundancy in 3D video coding such as view synthesis prediction (VSP) and depth based motion vector prediction (DMVP), and compression efficiency can be improved by accurate view synthesis. Coding and synthesis experiments are performed for performance evaluation of a dilation filter with MPEG test sequences. Dilation filter was implemented on the top of the MPEG reference software for AVC based 3D video coding. By applying a depth dilation filter, BD-rate gains of 0.5% and 6.0% in terms of PSNR of decoded views and synthesized views, respectively.
