  • Publication number: 20180183999
    Abstract: Reproduction position information of a free viewpoint video is formatted to be easy for a viewer to understand, and managed. Words of a photographer, the words being uttered when the photographer was impressed at a time of shooting a scenery of the real world, are used as a tag of the shot video, and the words are managed in association with a viewpoint position and a viewing direction, and shooting time. Alternatively, words of the viewer viewing the free viewpoint video, the words being uttered when the viewer was impressed by a certain scene, are used as a tag of the shot video, and the words are managed in association with a viewpoint position and a viewing direction, and shooting time corresponding to the reproduction position. The viewer can cue a desired free viewpoint video by using a tag with which tagging has been performed by the viewer himself/herself or another person.

  • Publication number: 20170201694
    Abstract: To provide an excellent photographing apparatus including a plurality of cameras and capable of photographing a wide angle image with less parallax. View point positions (camera positions) of video cameras 101 to 106 are radially arranged at predetermined angular intervals on a horizontal concentric circle about a vertical reference axis that passes a predetermined reference point. The video cameras are fixed in such a manner that camera principal-axis directions of the video cameras are individually directed outward and upward from a horizontal plane by a predetermined elevation angle Tvu, with the result that upper end portions of a vertical angle of view overlap. Therefore, photographing can be performed uninterruptedly even in an overhead direction without providing a camera that is directed right above.

  • Publication number: 20170083084
    Abstract: Provided is an image display device configured to display a free viewpoint image that tracks a movement of observer's head and trunk. The line-of-sight direction and trunk orientation of the user are individually oriented in a free viewpoint space displayed on a display device 500 based on posture information of the user's head and trunk, which are respectively obtained from a head motion tracking device 200 and a trunk motion tracking device 300. A behavior that is natural in real space can be represented by moving a line of sight to a front direction of the trunk on a space in a state where the line of sight does not match the front direction of the trunk. An unnatural UI that goes straight to the line-of-sight direction is prevented regardless of orientation of the trunk.

  • Publication number: 20170036111
    Abstract: [Object] To readily detect a position of a head of a user using an inexpensive sensor. [Solution] Change of the position of the head accompanied by viewpoint movement of the sitting user is accompanied by rotation movement of the head. Therefore, posture of the head of the user is obtained by integrating angular velocity detected by a gyro sensor worn on the head, and the posture of the head of the user is converted into a position of a head on a user coordinate system assuming that the head moves on a spherical surface having a radius of an arm length r around a waist position of the user. By adding the obtained change of the position in a head coordinate system to a position in a camera set at an application side which renders an image, motion parallax is presented.
