Special Issue on

"Multi-Camera Imaging, Coding and Innovative Display: Techniques and Systems"

Manuscript Submission Deadline: July 1, 2009

Recently, the importance of three-dimensional (3D) imaging technology has been significantly increased. With its capability of offering richer experience, 3D imaging systems are expected to replace traditional systems in near future in many different areas of industry, business, education, and entertainment. Especially, multi-camera imaging is a practical approach to construct 3D imaging systems, since multi-view images or videos can provide different views of the same scene, offering interactivity as well as 3D perception. However, in spite of the advantages, there are various challenges that should be overcome to deploy multi-camera imaging techniques in practical visual communication systems.

All aspects of image processing systems should be redesigned to communicate multi-view images efficiently: acquisition, representation, coding, and display. First, the acquisition step requires the calibration of multiple cameras and the post-processing procedure to compensate for various discrepancies, such as illumination differences. Second, it is essential to develop efficient tools to represent and compress multi-view images or videos compactly, which require a huge amount of storage space and transmission bandwidth in general. Third, innovative 3D display technologies should be developed to enable viewers to experience full 3D parallax without restrictions

The goal of this special issue is to solicit the state-of-the-art approaches and technical solutions in the area of multi-camera imaging, coding, and 3D display. The special issue will provide a convincing forum for researchers and practitioners to present their latest research results.


The scope of this special issue is to cover all aspects that relate to multi-camera imaging, coding, and 3D display. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • * Acquisition of multi-view and 3D images
  • * Calibration and synchronization of multiple cameras
  • * Depth estimation and view synthesis from multi-view images or videos
  • * Compact representation and compression of multi-view images or videos
  • * 3D representation tools: meshes, points, and voxels
  • * Error resilient multi-view video compression
  • * Design of 3DTV systems and free viewpoint TV systems
  • * Stereoscopic, auto-stereoscopic, and holographic display techniques
  • * Novel applications and constructions of multi-camera and 3D imaging systems
