“Stereoscopic 3D Processing for Handheld Devices”
Dr. Fred Ware, Texas Instruments
Sponsored by the Dallas Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing Society
I will provide an overview of stereoscopic 3D (S3D) image and video recording. I will discuss the key techniques for creating the 3D effect with low-cost dual-image sensors. Then I will discuss the challenges and tradeoffs for stereoscopic 3D processing on application processors targeted for handheld devices. The stereoscopic techniques include camera alignment, convergence, focus, exposure and color balance. I will conclude the talk with a view of future areas of interest to evolve the stereoscopic 3D video quality and user experience.
