Current view synthesis prediction (VSP) techniques for multiview video coding (MVC) rely on disparity-based view interpolation or depth-based 3D warping. The former cannot be applied to every camera view, whereas the latter may require coding of the depth information of a scene. To avoid these constraints, we propose an improved VSP-based MVC scheme based on the following three techniques: 1) view extrapolation, which allows VSP to be applicable to almost all camera views, 2) projective rectification, which improves the synthesis quality when neighboring camera planes are not parallel, and 3) synthesis bias correction, which uses the past synthesis biases to improve the synthesis quality of the current frame. Experimental results demonstrate that our scheme offers PSNR gains of up to 1.6 dB compared to the current MVC standard.
