Abstract

The recent commercial availability of autostereoscopic displays has led to a rise in interest in 3D video. The need to store and transmit 3D video has created some interesting challenges. 3D video contains both color and depth information, and should be treated differently from 2D video for optimal results. This paper explores ideas for efficient 3D video source coding, tests these ideas in a human subject test with 27 subjects, and analyzes and discusses the results. It is concluded that for the specific display and codec used, 3D video file sizes can be reduced to about one-quarter of their original sizes without significant degradation in quality.
