Title: IMAGE GENERATION FROM VIDEO
Abstract:
An apparatus comprising a store (101) for storing route data for a set of routes in an N-dimensional space where each route of the set of routes is associated with a video item including frames comprising both image and depth information. An input (105) receives a viewer position indication and a selector (107) selects a first route of the set of routes in response to a selection criterion dependent on a distance metric dependent on the viewer position indication and positions of the routes of the set of routes. A retriever (103, 109) retrieves a first video item associated with the first route from a video source (203). An image generator (111) generates at least one view image for the viewer position indication from a first set of frames from the first video item. In the system, the selection criterion is biased towards a currently selected route relative to other routes of the set of routes.
