3D Lifting

Fig. 1. 3D lifting decomposition of image sets

During his tenure at Microsoft Research Asia, Dr. Li has noticed the works of image based rendering (IBR) research done at Microsoft, such as Lumigraph, Lightfield , Layered Depth Image , Concentric Mosaics , etc.. Being a compression expert, he starts to consider how to compress the IBR image set efficiently. He has worked out a number of different compression methods, such as:
