  1. 1. Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications - Heinrich-Hertz-Institut 3D, Interactive Devices and Innovative Applications Dr. Ulrich Leiner Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut Einsteinufer 37 10587 Berlin www.hhi.fraunhofer.de Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 1 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  2. 2. What do we do? Fraunhofer Association: Applied research in Germany 60 Institutes, 17000 Scientists, 1.7 Bil Budget Department Interactive Media – Human Factors 25 Scientists Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI) telecommunication, photonics, image processing 270 Scientists, 26 Mio. Budget Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 2 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  3. 3. Historic Artifacts in 3D The virtual museum is getting real • Many peaces of art are currently scanned • and reconstructed as high resolution 3D-objects • Monuments, books, figures, vases, statues, buildings • Soon, there will be extremely realistic 3D-models of everything „important“ to mankind • Virtual museums will make millions of artifacts available for watching, studying, comparing, creativity • The download story for these models is just to come Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 3 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  4. 4. Historic Artifacts in 3D November 09 we installed a 3D-book presenter at the Bavarian State Library • Books are still stored locally, since there are rather few scanned 3D models yet • But there are about 100.000.000 to come • Noteworthy, we added a touchless interaction system • This magic input device allows completely new interaction paradigms Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 4 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  5. 5. 3D Content should be seen in 3D! If a proof for the success of movies was still needed, Avatar gave it to the full extend • 3D-movies will spread out through the internet • Their resolution will be at least HD/eye • Currently, real convincing 3D-displays are still lacking • Either, you have to wear glasses • Or compromise in the resolution • HHI is successfully working on autostereoscopic 3D-displays • The virtual museum will also benefit from real 3D- displays Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 5 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  6. 6. 3D Content should be seen in 3D! Based on lenticular beam splitters and real time eye-tracking, • we can provide each eye with a HD/2 resolution Video • No glasses are needed • Again, touchless interaction is shown as preferred input method • It’s not yet possible to show 3D on this beamer Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 6 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  7. 7. Real Video-Conferences should be in 3D! Videoconferencing will realize in real time • Multi-user auto stereoscopic display technology • Depth estimation with combination of narrow baseline, trifocal and wide baseline camera setup • Conversion to suitable layered video-plus-depth (LDV) format • Each terminal receives eight LDV streams, one for each view, two for each display • Terminal decodes LDV and converts it to multiple views required by auto-stereoscopic Dr. Ulrich Leiner display Slide 7 18. Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential
  8. 8. 3D City Navigation Systems Not only pottery is modeled as virtual 3D objects All cities get their virtual counterpart • Berlin city models presents nearly each building in zoomable levels of detail • Realtime navigation and interaction is requested • Points of information will be installed • At home, applications will also become popular • Combination with 2D images can be expected Dr. Ulrich Leiner Folie 8 Slide 8 25.02.2010 © Fraunhofer HHI Februar 2010 © Fraunhofer HHI, Ulrich Leiner, confidential 18.
  9. 9. Remote Surveillance and Retrieval Not necessarily a 3D-application, but one, which collects and transfers TeraPetabytes of data • Demand for private and public security is rising • Number of cameras, resolution and framerate will be increased • Location of cameras, location of storage and location of surveillants are absolutely independent of each other • We are currently working on optimal retrieval system, including object recognition and tracing Dr. Ulrich Leiner Slide 9 18.
