Title:

    A new real-time video synthesis method for virtual studio environments using GPU and projected screens

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    This paper describes a new supportive information projecting technique for virtual TV studio environments with a back projected screen which is not visible for the audience, but visible for actors. Traditional TV studios use blue or green back chroma-key for video composition, thus the actors cannot see the final composite without the preview monitor. When the actors point or watch a point on the background image, they need an extensive experience or rehearsals. In our system, the actors can see and point the supportive information displays; such as computer generated background, virtual actors, scripts and/or final composites around them.
