With the evolution of color digital television and digital broadcasting systems we have seen the rapid evolution of TV and video over the past 10 years. Direct satellite and digital cable systems now offer both standard definition and High definition TV. Analogue terrestrial TV broadcasting is being replaced entirely with digital and HDTV over terrestrial systems.
The natural next step after HDTV will be the introduction of 3D services but the standards and technologies for this is more complex and, until recently, less well developed. With the completion of DVB standards for Mutliview coding (MVC) enhancements this is now set to change and allow 3D services to expand.
This Hands-On course will provide a technical overview of the challenges of delivering 3D video services. It will address the visual perception issues as well as the mechanisms of encoding and transporting 3D TV services.
The course will then look at the competing systems that already exist as well as the parts of the standardization that have been completed and available, as well as vendor independent standardization.
Hands-On exercises will allow students to build 3D Video presentations and experiment with different ways of viewing 3D TV applications and services.
