The Free View Point Video system for videoconferencing (FTV-Wei) project has been completed with the design and development of a complete real time system. The project has been carried out by the members of the Grupo de Tratamiento de Imágenes (GTI) under a contract with Huawei Software Technologies, Nanjing, China. This project aimed for a scheme based on sparse camera configuration and consumer electronics equipment. So, the researchers of the GTI have devised lightweight schemes for video acquisition, transmission, and rendering. Linear and planar camera configurations have been used and rules on the relative advantages of those scenarios have been achieved. Depth information has been obtained combining depth stereo vision and multiview stereo. New schemes for lossless and lossy transmission allow for the delivery of the multiview plus depth information to a remote receiver where free viewpoint video is generated. Minimizing the motion to photon latency, the video corresponding to virtual viewpoint chosen by the user is rendered. New algorithms combining texture and depth achieve a better subjective quality. Comparing this outcome with those of leading-edge research teams, the real time operation and the ability to work with a sparse camera array are outstanding achievements.
