Abstract Autostereoscopic 3DTV is becoming an exciting media that enable us to view a 3D scene from more than one viewpoint. Meanwhile, considered as the ultimate autostereoscopic 3DTV, Free-viewpoint TV (FTV) can provide arbitrary views by freely synthesizing and changing viewpoints. Essentially, either 3DTV or FTV is based on virtual view synthesis using captured views along with corresponding depth information. In this paper, we study how virtual views can be reliably generated from multiple captured videos for 3D display. One key challenge is that the required depth information may contain depth errors, leading to uncomfortable artifacts in the synthesized view. We review the recent progress in virtual view synthesis methods where depth reliability is considered to handle synthesis artifacts and improve the quality of the virtual view. Not only for intermediate virtual view, have we also presented high-quality close-up view synthesis methods for wider navigation in 3DTV and FTV.
