Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR CONVERTING TWO-DIMENSIONAL VIDEO TO THREE-DIMENSIONAL VIDEO
Abstract:
A device has parallax correcting means for correcting the parallax of each area calculated by parallax calculating means according to the magnitude of a moving vector of each area detected by moving vector detecting means so as to avoid the drawback that the stereoscopic feeling of a conversion video is greatly different with an input video when the MTD method and the CID method are both used. When a depth estimate is converted to a parallax, the depth estimate is subjected to distance scale conversion to suppress the distortion of the conversion image to determine a tentative target phase for each parallax calculation area. A dynamic range in which the phase differences between the parallax calculation areas lie in a distortion allowable range are found and subjected to distance scale conversion, and a tentative target phase is determined, repeating such processings.
