PYRAMIDAL MULTI-VIEW PBR - A Point-based Algorithm for Multi-view Multi-resolution Rendering of Large Data Sets from Range Images

Sajid Farooq, J. Paul Siebert

Abstract

This paper describes a new Point-Based-Rendering technique that is parsimonious with the typically large data-sets captured by stereo-based, multi-view, 3D imaging devices for clinical purposes. Our approach is based on image pyramids and exploits the implicit topology relations found in range images, but not in unstructured 3D point-could representations. An overview of our proposed PBR-based system for visualisation, manipulation, integration and analysis of sets of range images at native resolution is presented along with initial multi-view rendering results.
