Experimental Prototype Merging Stereo Panoramic Video and Interactive 3D Content in a 5-sided CAVETM. (Conceptual Design and Preliminary Results)
Immersion and interaction have been identified as key factors influencing the quality of experience in stereoscopic video systems. An experimental prototype designed to explore the influence of these factors in 3D video applications is described here1. The focus is on the real-time insertion algorithm of new 3D models into the original video streams. Using this algorithm, our prototype is aimed to explore a new interaction paradigm (similar to the augmented reality approach) with 3D video applications.
