Multiple View Integration and Display Using Virtual Mirrors
This paper describes a technique, called V-Mirroring, for integrating videos taken from different cameras with different viewpoints of the same scene. The term V-Mirroring stems from the use of virtual mirrors in order to composite videos together. These mirrors are placed in the scene, near to the locations of the cameras. Thereafter, for any given camera, its corresponding video is overlaid with the remaining videos in the locations of the virtual mirrors closest to their respective cameras. Thus, the objects in the scene that are imaged by more than one camera, can then be viewed from multiple viewpoints in a single video. Previous approaches for compositing images or videos, such as panorama mosaicing, require that the input videos’ image planes lie on the same, or approximately the same 2D plane, thereby losing the 3D feeling of the environment. In this work, videos can be taken from very different viewpoints and still be combined into a single video containing the differing vi...
