In this paper camera pose control for optimizing multiview distributed video coding is considered. The scenario considered is that multiple agents with monocular cameras observe a common scene in a three dimensional world. To get a good video reconstruction under a transmission rate constraint, the camera closest to the center of the camera array is chosen as the reference camera. The poses of all other cameras are controlled and designed such that their images are maximally similar under a constraint on their separation. Based on the rigid motion allowed for the cameras, two cases are considered. For the case where the rigid motion only involves translation, translation control is designed. For the case where it involves both translation and rotation, both controls are constructed. Some simulated results are given to show the efficiency of the designed controllers.
