Multi-View Content Capture Sessions Completed
Audio-visual content capture sessions have been held at the University of Surrey, which have resulted in the capture of high quality audio and video content, which will be used in the DIOMEDES project to develop the system components, and to evaluate the final system. The content will also be made publicly available, and can be previewed in 3D from the deliverable page. The unique aspect of the DIOMEDES content is that it has been captured using eight high definition digital cinema quality cameras. Much existing content is either captured using fewer cameras, or uses a larger number of lower quality cameras.
