3DTV Content Search

3DTV Content Search

Objective

3DTVS deals with algorithms and techniques for the analysis, indexing and browsing of 3D television content so that it can be efficiently annotated, stored, searched and retrieved in 3D audiovisual ar
3D video content is already being accumulated in 3D television (3DTV) broadcasters and 3D video/cinema  production houses. Such content is also being posted in social networks or websites like YouTube. It consists primarily of stereoscopic video and multichannel  sound and must be annotated, archived, searched and retrieved. However, it cannot be properly analyzed using algorithms for “2D video” and stereo audio content, or accommodated well within classical audiovisual media archives, because such algorithms and archives do not take into account or exploit information regarding the third dimension (depth). The goal of the 3DTVS project is to devise  novel 3DTV audiovisual content analysis,  description, indexing, search and browsing methods, and to incorporate such functionalities in 3D audiovisual content archives. The major novelty of the researched approaches is in exploiting 3D (depth) information. Thus, the corresponding archiving system would be able to address user  queries of the form ‘find stereo videos with poor/good stereoscopic quality’ or ‘find stereo videos, where actor X actually approaches actor Y in the 3D space’.
