Image Vision & Immersion

Most of tomorrow's audio-visual formats increase the feeling of immersion in the content. The challenge is to transform the end user's experience by immersing him in the heart of the action or information. At the same time, computer vision technologies (augmented reality, virtual reality, volumetric video, etc.) are fed by progress in artificial intelligence. They are revolutionizing many industrial sectors by offering a new perception of the environment.

Many fields are concerned: media, training, collaborative work, surveillance, health, industry, web.

The Image Vision & Immersion laboratory builds tools that enable the adoption of these new technologies by professionals and the general public. It delivers expertise and technological bricks related to the characteristics and dimensions of the image (resolution, colorimetry, exposure, segmentation, compression...), sound (spatialization), and new rendering devices (screen, projection, headsets, and glasses for AR/VR in 3 or 6 degrees of freedom, holography...). These technologies allow the company to address different fields of application, from industry to medicine (in particular with industrial holography, augmented reality for health, etc.), from entertainment (television, cinema, etc.) to serious gaming (training, institutional, etc.), by placing the user at the heart of its thinking and its work, from the definition of needs to the use of the proposed solutions.

Self-Supervised Focus Measure Fusing for Depth Estimation from Computer-Generated Holograms

Depth from focus is a simple and effective methodology for retrieving the scene geometry from a hologram when used with the appropriate focus measure and patch size. However, fixing those parameters for every sample may not be the right choice, as different scenes can be composed with various types of textures. In this work, we propose a self-supervised learning methodology for fusing the depth…

TwistSLAM++: Fusing multiple modalities for accurate dynamic semantic SLAM

Most classical SLAM systems rely on the static scene assumption, which limits their applicability in real world scenarios. Recent SLAM frameworks have been proposed to simultaneously track the camera and moving objects. However they are often unable to estimate the canonical pose of the objects and exhibit a low object tracking accuracy. To solve this problem we propose TwistSLAM++, a semantic,…

Open access dataset of holographic videos for codec analysis and machine learning applications

Despite the growing interest for Holography, there is a lack of publicly available three-dimensional hologram sequences for the evaluation of video codecs with inter-frame compression mechanisms such as motion estimation and compensation. In this paper, we report the first large-scale dataset containing 18 holographic videos computed with three different resolutions and pixel pitches. By…

JPEG Pleno Holography presents the numerical reconstruction software for holograms- An excursion in holographic views

Digital reconstructions of numerical holograms enable data visualization and serve a multitude of purposes ranging from microscopy to holographic displays. Over the years, many pipelines have been developed for specific hologram types. Within the standardization effort of JPEG Pleno holography, an open-source MATLAB toolbox was developed that reflects the best current consensus. It can process…
