Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

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.
