Solutions for Immersive 3D Video Communication (Break-out session Immersive Experiences)

3D video communication is one relevant application scenario in future 3D services. A new concept for immersive 3D videoconferencing is presented, which targets the existing challenges beyond the state of the art. One of the key challenges is providing direct eye contact. A real-time solution for multi-view video analysis and virtual view rendering at high resolution and high quality is presented, which provides direct eye contact between the user and its remote counterpart.


Dr. Oliver Schreer is working since 1998 as project leader in the Immersive Media & 3D Video Group at Image Processing Department of Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute. His main field of research is 3D analysis, image-based rendering and 3D video communication. He was and is involved in a number of European research projects in the IST, FP6 and FP7 work programme, acting as work package leader and project coordinator.

In November 1999, Oliver Schreer finished his PhD in electrical engineering at the TU Berlin. Since autumn 2001, he is Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, TU Berlin, giving lectures on stereo image processing and view synthesis. Since November 2006, he is Assistant Professor (Privatdozent) in the same faculty. He published more than 60 papers and he edited a book on “3D Video Communication” published in 2005 at Wiley & Sons, UK.
