Title: 3D Video Coding and Our Related Research
Abstract: We will discuss the latest state-of-the-art 3D-High Efficiency Video Coding (3D-HEVC) technology and its applications. Following the success of HEVC jointly developed by the Joint Collaborative Team on Video Coding (JCT-VC) of ISO/IEC Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG), a second team known as the Joint Collaborative Team on 3D Video (JCT-3V) focuses on developing its 3D extension. This technology goes beyond the traditional stereoscopic and multi-view representations of video and extends to include the use of depth maps and view synthesis. More powerful 3D capabilities coupled with much higher resolution and perceptual quality target toward future devices and content that can be expected for theater, home, mobile, and special office applications. In 3D-HEVC, coding of dependent views and depth maps, as well as synthesizing intermediate views, pose new challenges in achieving high coding efficiency while maintaining a reasonable computational complexity. In the talk, we will discuss the coding tools and technology for 3D-HEVC, its research challenges, its current and possible future technology and applications, and highlight some of our current related research.
Biography: Nam Ling received the B.Eng. degree from the National University of Singapore and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, U.S.A. He is currently the Sanfilippo Family Chair Professor (University Endowed Chair) of Santa Clara University (U.S.A) and the Chair of its Department of Computer Engineering.
