Fast and Accurate 3D Reproduction of a Remote Collaboration Environment


We present an approach for high quality rendering of the 3D representation of a remote collaboration scene, along with real-time rendering speed, by expanding the unstructured lumigraph rendering (ULR) method. ULR uses a 3D proxy which is in the simplest case a 2D plane. We develop dynamic proxy for ULR, to get a better and more detailed 3D proxy in real-time; which leads to the rendering of high-quality and accurate 3D scenes with motion parallax support. The novel contribution of this work is the development of a dynamic proxy in real-time. The dynamic proxy is generated based on depth images instead of color images as in the Lumigraph approach.
