Today, stereoscopic and multi-view video are among the popular research areas in the multimedia world. In this study, we have designed and built a platform consisting of stereo-view capturing, real-time transmission and display. At the display stage, end users view video in 3D by using polarized glasses. Multi-view video is compressed in an efficient way by using multi-view video coding techniques and streamed using standard real-time transport protocols. The entire system is built by modifying available open source systems whenever possible. Receiver can view the content of the video built from multiple channels as mono or stereo depending on its display and bandwidth capabilities.

Research efforts on 3DTV technology have been strengthened worldwide recently, covering the whole media processing chain from capture to display. Different 3DTV systems rely on different 3-D scene representations that integrate various types of data. Efficient coding of these data is crucial-for the success of 3DTV. Compression of pixel-type data including stereo video, multiview video, and associated depth or disparity maps extends available principles of classical video coding. Powerful algorithms and ope...
Planar 3d scene representations for depth compression
Özkalaycı, Burak Oğuz; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
The recent invasion of stereoscopic 3D television technologies is expected to be followed by autostereoscopic and holographic technologies. Glasses-free multiple stereoscopic pair displaying capabilities of these technologies will advance the 3D experience. The prospective 3D format to create the multiple views for such displays is Multiview Video plus Depth (MVD) format based on the Depth Image Based Rendering (DIBR) techniques. The depth modality of the MVD format is an active research area whose main obj...

3D video based on multi-view representations is becoming widely popular. Real-time encoding/decoding of such video is an important concern as the number and resolution of views increase. We present systematic methods for design and optimization of real-time multi-view video encoding/decoding algorithms using multi-core processors and provide benchmark results. The proposed multi-core decoding architectures are fully compliant with the current JVT-MVC international standard, and enable multi-threaded process...
End-to-end learned image compression with normalizing flows for latent space enhancement
Yavuz, Fatih; Kamışlı, Fatih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-9)
Learning based methods for image compression recently received considerable attention and demonstrated promising performance, surpassing many commonly used codecs. Architectures of learning based methodologies are typically comprised of a nonlinear analysis transform, which maps the input image to a latent representation, a synthesis transform that maps the quantized latent representation back to the image domain and a model for the probability distribution of the latent representation. Successful modelling...
Video segmentation using partially decoded MPEG bitstream
Kayaalp, Işıl Burcun; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, a mixed type video segmentation algorithm is implemented to find the scene cuts in MPEG compressed video data. The main aim is to have a computationally efficient algorithm for real time applications. Due to this reason partial decoding of the bitstream is used in segmentation. As a result of partial decoding, features such as bitrate, motion vector type, and DC images are implemented to find both continuous and discontinuous scene cuts on a MPEG-2 coded general TV broadcast data. The result...
