Description:


    Abstract

    We present an integrated 3D capturing, visualization and user interaction system composed of a computer vision based 3D capturing device, a scene composer and a large scale holographic display. The system performs in real-time and provides the facilities required for capturing realistic human 3D body models, inserting the human representations inside virtual scenarios, detecting 3D interactions between the body models and the virtual objects present in the scene and visualizing the resulting 3D performance on a true 3D holographic display.
