Processing Real-World Light Field Images

Jean-Michel Prima - 19/05/2016

Epitomized by the Lytro, a new breed of so-called plenoptic or light field cameras allow to simultaneously capture multiple images of one single scene. This rich visual material can be edited in order to pick from different possible focuses, different depths of field and even different lens apertures. However, the current software line-up would be hard-pressed to process such files due to their dimensionality and complexity. Inria scientist Christine Guillemot has been awarded an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) in order to tackle this unprecedented challenge and build algorithms for next-generation photo and video applications using light fields.
