    Free-viewpoint TV (FTV) is cutting the frontier of audiovisual communications. FTV is an innovative media that enables us to view 3-D space by freely changing our viewpoints. It also allows us to listen at any listening point in the 3-D space. Since FTV transmits all audiovisual information of the 3-D space, it can reconstruct an audiovisual replica of the 3-D space anywhere and anytime over dista... View full abstract»

    Holography, with its stunning 3-D realism and its expressive potential, in the 1970s and 1980s seemed poised to become the next step in the evolution of visual display. Yet apart from certain specialized niches, display holograms are perhaps more rarely encountered in everyday life than they were 20 or 30 years ago. But the recent resurgence of interest in 3-D video for entertainment applications ... View full abstract»

    Audiovisual communications is at the core of multimedia systems that allow users to interact across distances. It is common understanding that both audio and video are required for high-quality interaction. While audiovisual information provides a user with a satisfactory impression of being present in a remote environment, physical interaction and manipulation is not supported. True immersion int...
