Multiview video coding which is also known as MVC 3D is an amendment to AVC video compression. This helps in encoding sequences captures from multiple cameras. MVC format includes base view and dependent view streams. This format is highly efficient. Multiview video coding created a lot of interest in content delivery markets. Multiview view video coding is about encoding set of multiple views and the goal of it is highest pixel fidelity.
Multiview view video coding is an amendment of Advanced Video coding. It generates one-bit stream after receiving synchronized video streams that are temporary. A scene is captured by multiple cameras in different viewpoints and thus multiview video has many inter view statistical dependencies. Application areas of multiview video coding are 3D video and free viewpoint video.
More and more movies and other video content are now made in 3D. The numbers of cinemas that are able to present the 3D content are also increasing. In the coming days, the users might be able to watch the 3D films in their homes on PC itself. Multiview video coding influenced many marketers to release televisions, monitors with capabilities of 3D Playback.
Without us realizing, we use the video coding technology regularly. This technology is behind the mobile phones, internet streaming and digital television. Multiview video coding became widely used in various applications such as video broadcasting of high resolution and also mobile video streaming via the internet. Other professional applications are 3D video and free viewpoint video. 3D video applications use multi video coding and this technology is used in Blu-ray 3D format.
Multiview video coding is based on disparity compensated predication for efficient coding and this is achieved by reducing redundancy of inter-view.
3D displays are targeting the consumer markets and many views are required by high-end displays. Other applications are low-cost mobiles.
