Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE AND IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to an image processing device and image processing method allowing for a home server to play back a 3D image simply by transmitting a viewing range, based on viewing position and line-of-sight direction, and requesting, from a request content server, a texture image required for generating the 3D image. The content server groups a plurality of multi-cameras by cameras constituting each multi-camera, sets a camera priority for each group on the basis of evaluation values for camera locations in each group, and transmits, to the home server, surface image data for a selected camera in accordance with the group selected according to the user's viewing range and the set priority. The present disclosure can be applied, for example, to home servers or the like which generate display images of prescribed viewpoints from an image of the entire celestial sphere.
