LeNet-Like Architecture, 69.4% Average Time Reduction With Negligible Bitrate Increase on Synthesized Views

3D-HEVC (DIBR: Depth Image Based Rendering)

In this story, Adaptive QP Convolutional Neural Network (AQ-CNN), by Huazhong University of Science and Technology, is briefly presented since this is a 1-page conference paper, there are not much details. I read this because I work on video coding research.

3D-HEVC is one of the extensions of HEVC to support 3D video. With the color/texture videos and depth maps of both left and right views, any intermediate virtual views in between can be synthesized, such that autostereoscopic or free viewpoint 3D videos can be supported. Thus, it is called multiview video plus depth coding (MVD). And recently, the 3D video technology has also been involved (Of course enhancements and changes are needed.) in the MPEG-I project to support 3DoF and 6DoF videos which will be completed in the coming years.

This is a paper in 2019 DCC. (Sik-Ho Tsang @ Medium)
