This paper presents a new approach for generation of super-resolution stereoscopic and multi-view video from monocular video. Such multi-view video is used for instance with multi-user 3D displays or auto-stereoscopic displays with headtracking to create a depth impression of the observed scenery. Our approach is an extension of the realistic stereo view synthesis (RSVS) approach which is based on structure from motion techniques and image-based rendering to generate the desired stereoscopic

Subjective quality measurements with 25 real and 3 synthetic sequences were carried out to test the performance of RSVS against simple timeshift and depth image-based rendering (DIBR). Our approach heavily enhances the stereoscopic depth perception and gives a more realistic impression of the observed scenery. Simulation results applying super-resolution show that the image quality can further be improved by reducing motion blur and compression artifacts.
