3D Human Body Reconstruction

Virtual Reality: 3D Human Body Reconstruction from Fraunhofer HHI digitizes Human Beings

At the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, the 3D human body reconstruction technology captures real persons with multiple cameras at the same time and creates naturally moving dynamic 3D models. Afterwards, they can be integrated in computer graphics virtual worlds or real scenes. The human 3D models can be manipulated to change their viewing direction, movements and animation.

Tile Based HEVC Video for VR

Virtual Reality: Tile Based HEVC Video - Enabler for high quality VR streaming

High resolution content is required to foster a sense of immersion in VR video applications, but the large amount of data poses a challenge to established transport means and the limits of video decoders. Lightweight merging of HEVC Tiles allows to easily adapt the 360° video data stream to the current VR user viewport without transcoding to significantly reduce the required data rates.
