Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A novel Multi-Level View Synthesis (MLVS) approach for 3D vision and free-viewpoint video applications, such as light field imaging, is presented. MLVS exploits the advantages of Depth Image Layer Separation (DILS), a new inter-view interpolation algorithm, by extending stereo to multiple camera configurations. The technique finds the pixel correspondences and synthesis through two levels of matching and synthesis process. The main aim of MLVS is to create a multi-camera view system through a reduced number of actual image acquisition cameras, whilst maintaining the quality of the virtual view synthesis images. The proposed technique is shown to offer improved performance and provide additional views with fewer cameras compared to conventional high volume camera configurations for free-viewpoint video acquisition. Thus, substantial cost savings can ensue in processing, calibration, bandwidth and storage requirements.
