Encoding free view point data in movie data container
Seiko Epson Corporation
July 19, 2018 - N°20180205963

Multiple holocam orbs observe a real-life environment and generate an artificial reality representation of the real-life environment. Depth image data is cleansed of error due to led shadow by identifying the edge of a foreground object in an (near infrared light) intensity image, identifying an edge in a depth image, and taking the difference between the start of both edges.
Cleaning of depth data by elimination of artifacts caused by shadows and parallax
