The last few years have seen several advances in technology that have made the capture, transmission and display of 3D content feasible.
Until recently 3D content was only available in specialised cinemas due to the investment needed and the bandwidth requirements.
Current technology and infrastructure allows for the transmission of stereoscopic video over satellite, Blu-Ray disks, and internet technologies.
These are target to stereoscopic displays where the user needs special glasses to present the right content to the human vision system.
However, to provide a more immersive service and experience, more content coming from multiple cameras needs to be sent to the new auto stereoscopic displays.
This white paper gives an introduction to the field of 3D media coding and highlights the research direction that can bring 3D multimedia experience closer to the user. The success of the technology will allow for the development of a large number of applications and services.
