Volumetric Video Technology

Description of Volumetric Video Technology

Features of volumetric video

Volumetric video is a technology which reconstructs a 3D space data from captured images. The process does not stitch and switch image data from multiple cameras; instead, an entire 3D space is reconstructed as data, thus enabling the generation of video from any position or angle within such space. By converting volumetric video, it is possible to provide a variety of outputs, such as free viewpoint video of 2D images and manipulated content of 3D data.
