Light-field technology is an important approach when it comes to Virtual Reality content aquisition. To make sure those VR applicatios have a significant change in perspective and freedom of movement - so called 6DoF "Six Degrees of Freedom" - the generation and acquisition of high quality multiple camera data is one solution.
For this purpose testing and improving various types of image processing algorithms can be applied.
Fraunhofer IIS presents a testset of natural dense light-field images. This allows testing depth estimation algorithms, comparing image- and depth-image based rendering (IBR, DIBR), comparing virtual views to a ground-truth reference and many more.
