Abstract

Increasing interest can be observed in applications of image-based rendering, especially three-dimensional televi-sion (3D TV). In such systems, the original object or scene is recorded using a setup of several cameras. From the recorded video streams, arbitrary views can be interpolated, so that the user can navigate freely around the scene. However, the amount of data involved is huge, and efficient compression is needed. Several coding schemes have been proposed which exploit the spatial correlation between the views in addition to the temporal correlation between subsequent frames. In this paper, the block matching step of multi-view video coding is statistically analysed. Simulation results for several test sequences are presented. It is shown how much prediction gain can be achieved by introducing block matching across the camera views. The distribution of best matches among a set of possible references is investigated in detail, and from these results, conclusions can be drawn about the reasonable selection of reference frames in a practical multi-view video coding scheme.
