A Portable stereo-video streaming system

Zerman, Emin
In the last decade, 3D technologies have made a great advancement in reaching the end users. Many of the cutting-edge technology had the opportunity to reach the customers. With the increase in popularity of mobile electronics and the new mobile 3D multimedia displaying methods, the mobile 3D became a very important multimedia factor in the last decade. This thesis presents an implementation of real-time stereo-video capture, compression, and wireless streaming from embedded platforms to mobile devices, as an end-to-end system. There are different aspects of an end-to-end system. In order to create an efficient and fast video streaming system, we tested different encoding structures for H.264/AVC and H.264/MVC with different 3D video formats. Experiments on different video streaming techniques are conducted, and the most effective one is employed. On the final system, side-by-side Frame Packing Arrangement presentation of stereo-video is used in H.264/AVC encoding system. The system is realized by using DM3730 SoC ARM device as transmitter and a mobile device with autostereoscopic display as receiver. Presented architecture makes 3D video communication between the mobile users connected to a wireless network possible. Performance tests are conducted for the system, and the results are presented in this study.
