At IBC 2009 in Amsterdam, the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin presents a technology for the conversion of stereo-quality film material for auto-stereoscopic 3D displays.
Scientists at the Image Processing department of the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute have developed a depth-based production format in which special algorithms attach a pixel exact depth map to each stereo image. Depth image-based rendering (DIBR) techniques are then used to generate the missing perspectives. In the simplest cases, the additional depth is automatically generated, while in more difficult situations it can be helpful to support the automated process through suitable adaptation of the parameters or to manually rectify particularly critical spots.

According to a Fraunhofer press release, FHG-HHI is presenting at IBC in Amsterdam a stereoscopic analyzer called STAN.This hardware-software combination supports camera operators and production teams in the shooting and processing of 3D film material.
See demonstrations of STAN at IBC 2009, Hall 8, Booth C81.Read the P.R. here on OpenPR.
