3DTV research to improve experience
by Colin Holland

LONDON — Films made in 3D could become more impressive as a result of work being carried out by a De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) researcher.

Dr Cristian Serdean is exploring an alternative way of creating high quality 3D from 2D stereoscopic images – stereoscopic images are created by filming two sets of footage of the same subject but from slightly different angles, corresponding to the viewer’s left and right eye.

Dr Serdean has been awarded a £182,693 grant under the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council’s First Grant Scheme to fund the work.

Traditionally, the 3D effect is achieved by shooting stereoscopic images and then merging them for display purposes. The resulting film is seen in 3D with the aid of special glasses designed to pass the correct image to each eye which the brain then processes into 3D information.
