3D imaging capable devices have been available on the market for a few years now but the number of 3D contents available for viewing is not growing fast enough to meet the demand. To compensate for such a problem, most 3D imaging devices are equipped with a 2Dto3D conversion function. In 2Dto3D conversion, depth estimation is essential in order to create pseudo 3D images. Often, such conversion involves complex computations and is difficult to process in a real-time manner. In this paper, we present the implementation of Toshiba's software 2Dto3D conversion solution, in particular, the depth estimation process on ARM processor. This could potentially allow real-time processing on embedded devices such as TVs, mobile phones and tablet computers.
