CZLoD: A psychophysical approach for 3D tele-immersive video
Wanmin Wu, Ahsan Arefin, Gregorij Kurillo, Pooja Agarwal, Klara Nahrstedt, Ruzena Bajcsy
Article No.: 39
DOI: 10.1145/2348816.2348818

This article presents a psychophysical study that measures the perceptual thresholds of a new factor called Color-plus-Depth Level-of-Details (CZLoD) peculiar to polygon-based 3D tele-immersive video. The results demonstrate the existence of Just...
