Walking into Panoramic and Immersive 3D Video
To enable viewers to perceive the video content as if he or she is walking inside the video scenes, we need to have two essential video technologies. One is to present the audience with panoramic videos with 360°, and the other is view-adaptive video playback, i.e. presenting video scenes in accordance with the change of viewing angles. For the first technology, we propose a fast video stitching algorithm via exploiting the audio information for frame synchronization, and for the second, we propose a Fake-3D and True-3D mix method to immerse viewers inside the video scene via its dynamic playback of panoramic videos, adaptive to multi-view changes. Our proposed technologies have great potential in practical applications, such as virtual reality gaming and new concept movie shows etc.
