This paper addresses signal processing issues related to coded representation, reconstruction and rendering of multiview video for 3D displays. We provide an overview of standardization efforts for multiview video that are aimed at reducing data rates required to represent the multiview video in compressed form. We then present an anti-aliasing filtering technique that effectively eliminates ghosting artifacts when rendering multiview video on 3D displays. Since high-frequency components of the signal are removed, substantial reductions in the compressed data rate could also be realized. Finally, we discuss the importance of scalability in the context of multiview video coding and suggest a combined anti-aliasing and scalable decoding scheme to minimize decoding resources for a given 3D display.
