Abstract
FTV (Free-viewpoint Television) is the ultimate 3DTV with an infinite number of views and ranks as the top of visual media. It enables users to view 3D scenes by freely changing the viewpoint. MPEG has been developing FTV standards since 2001. MVC (Multiview Video Coding) is the first phase of FTV, which enables efficient coding of multiview video. 3DV (3D Video) is the second phase of FTV, which enables the efficient coding of multiview video and depth data for multiview displays. Views in between linearly arranged cameras are synthesized from the multiview video and depth data in 3DV. Based on recent development of 3D technology, MPEG has started the third phase of FTV, targeting super multiview and free navigation applications. This new FTV standardization will achieve more flexible camera arrangement, more efficient coding and new functionality. Users can enjoy very realistic 3D viewing and walkthrough/ fly-through experience of 3D scenes in the super multiview and free navigation applications of FTV.
