Perceptual Analysis and Representations for Immersive Imaging

The emergence of 360°-video capture devices, light field camera arrays and head-mounted displays (HMDs) has created a completely new opportunity for content creators for delivering truly immersive experiences to audiences. In this special session we seek for novel solutions taking human visual perception into account, including new perceptual analyses and representations for immersive imaging technologies.
