3D video is widely perceived as the next major advancement in video technology. However, current solutions based on stereoscopic vision only exploit limited depth cues. In this PhD thesis, we will explore a new representation and compression framework for 3D video, with the potential to support all depth cues and to greatly enhanced user experience.
The candidate must hold a master degree in electrical engineering, computer science or equivalent. The candidate will have a strong knowledge in image and video processing, solid basis in mathematics, and good programming skills in Matlab or C/C++. The candidate will be fluent in English.
The doctoral research work will be carried out within the Multimedia Group (http://www.tsi.telecom-paristech.fr/mm/en/), in the Signal and Image Processing Department at Telecom ParisTech. Telecom ParisTech (http://www.telecom-paristech.fr/eng/telecom-paristech.html), one of France’s top five graduate engineering schools, is considered the leading French school in Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
The duration of the PhD program is 3 years. The candidate will be supported by a fellowship for the whole duration with a competitive salary. Starting date is expected in Fall 2011.
To apply: Applicants should send a motivation letter and a complete CV to Dr. Frederic Dufaux (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
