V. Michael Bove, Jr.

Abstract

The acquisition of range information allows real-world scenes to be manipulated in ways traditionally restricted to computer-generated images. This paper will describe lighting, focus, and other changes upon real scenes, describe some of the implications of range sensing to efficient coding of image sequences, and outline some new research into passive range sensing cameras which use focus information to infer distance.
