Modellbaserad videokodning med hjälp av färg- och djupkamera (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this master thesis, a model-based video coding algorithm has been developed that uses input from a colour and depth camera, such as the Microsoft Kinect. Using a model-based representation of a video has several advantages over the commonly used block-based approach, used by the H.264 standard. For example, videos can be rendered in 3D, be viewed from alternative views, and have objects inserted into them for augmented reality and user interaction.

This master thesis demonstrates a very efficient way of encoding the geometry of a scene. The results of the proposed algorithm show that it can reach very low bitrates with comparable results to the H.264 standard.

Abstract [sv]

I detta examensarbete har en modellbaserad videokodningsalgoritm utvecklats som använder data från en djup- och färgkamera, exempelvis Microsoft Kinect. Det finns flera fördelar med en modellbaserad representation av en video över den mer vanligt förekommande blockbaserade varianten, vilket används av bland annat H.264. Några exempel är möjligheten att rendera videon i 3D samt från alternativa vyer, placera in objekt i videon samt möjlighet för användaren att interagera med scenen.

Detta examensarbete påvisar en väldigt effektiv metod för komprimering av scengeometri. Resultaten av den presenterade algoritmen visar att möjligheten att uppnå väldigt låg bithastighet med jämförelsebara resultat med H.264-standarden.
