Proposed Approach for Depth Image Enhancement


The world nowadays is heading toward 3D video technologies. Many applications have been proposed for processing 3D video in its different kinds. One of the 3D video kind is the 3D stereoscopic technique, which it consists of two images left and right that is combined to create 3d video. Depth image is the information of depth that is extracted from the image pair (left & right) of the 3D video. In this paper a proposed approach for extracting and enhancing the depth image is accomplished. The extraction process of the depth image from the original 3d frame is done using disparity equation and Sum of Absolute Difference (SAD) algorithm and the enhancement process is achieved using soble edge detection operator. The proposed approach gave an appearance rate of depth image reach to 88% with different random cases.
