Safe 2D Graphics Insertion in Stereoscopic 3D Video Material

September 25th, 2010 · No Comments · Other S3D Tech


Jonathan Jenkyn (3D product specialist) and Simon Hailes (Chief Technology Officer) from Screen Subtitling Systems have released a whitepaper entitled “Safe insertion of graphics for stereoscopic material” which goes some way to define the issues that broadcasters will encounter when trying to use traditional 2D approaches with the new 3D TV channels. You know it is much easier to overlay 2D graphics, such as the logo of a TV channel, subtitles over a movie or some rolling text with the latest breaking news as well as some other graphical and text objects over the traditional television broadcasts in 2D. However when you have a 3D broadcast, no matter if it is live or a pre-recorded movie things can get a bit messy if you do not consider the depth of the 3D video being shown when placing some 2D graphical elements on top. The approach that Jonathan Jenkyn and Simon Hailes suggest is to use the so called disparity maps for correctly placing 2D graphical elements on top of 3D video material, so if you are interested into that you can check out the whitepaper for more information.
