Abstract
In the continuous effort to develop new multimedia content for-mats able to support more immersive and close to reality user experiences, 3D holoscopic imaging became lately an appealing technology, allowing a more natural and immersive 3D sensation with continuous full motion parallax, opening also new post-processing degrees of freedom, such as refocusing or viewing angle adjustments after content acquisition. In this context, this paper presents some novel achievements in 3D holoscopic con-tent acquisition and processing. An improved coding solution for 3D holoscopic video based on the High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) standard and the recently proposed self-similarity compensated prediction concept is also presented that substantially improves the coding performance of HEVC for this type of con-tent for both Intra- and Inter-coding.
