A novel pseudo real-time 3D visualisation system is proposed in this paper. The proposed system has been developed using the TI (Texas instruments) DM642 EVM board which is a standalone digital media processing board. The system also includes a stereo video capture module consisting of two PAL cameras and a 3D display unit for visualisation of 3D video input. The core algorithm utilises images captured from the cameras and generates 6 virtual in between views using interpolation techniques. The combined views (eight views of 2D images) are displayed on the 3D monitor using a proprietary method developed specifically for X3D monitors. The advantage of the proposed system is that real 3D impressions are able to be visualised in front of the 3D monitor in pseudo real-time without any special glasses. The proposed system has been evaluated on a number of real scenes. The limitations of our system will be discussed and the corresponding solutions will be given at the end of this paper.
