Image-based rendering (IBR) is an emerging and promising technology for photo-realistic rendering of scenes and objects from a collection of densely sampled images and videos. This paper proposes an image-based approach to the rendering and multi-view display of ancient Chinese artifacts for cultural heritage preservation. A multiple-camera circular array was constructed to record images of the artifacts. Novel techniques for segmenting and rendering new views of the artifacts from the sampled images are developed. The multiple views so synthesized enable the ancient artifacts to be displayed in modern multi-view displays and conventional stereo systems. Several collections from the University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong are captured and excellent rendering results are obtained.
