3D Video Generation and Service Based on a TOF Depth Sensor in MPEG-4 Multimedia Framework

In this paper, the authors present a new method to generate and serve 3D video represented by video-plus-depth using a Time-Of-Flight (TOF) depth sensor. In practice, depth images captured by the depth sensor have critical problems, such as optical noise, unmatched boundaries with their corresponding color images, and depth flickering artifacts in the temporal domain. In this paper, they enhance the noisy depth images by performing a series of processing steps including joint bilateral filtering with inner-edge selection, outer-boundary refinement by a robust image matting method, and temporal consistency based on motion estimation.
