At a receiver terminal, true 3D video provides ability to watch views selected from a large number of available views. Such ability is needed for the forthcoming 3D video applications like free-view television, autostereoscopic displays etc. Delivery of many views through communication channels is a challenging problem that has to be solved in the near future. In this paper, we study delivery of real 3D video using the state-of-the-art compression technology. Considered are the issues related to 3D video data model as well its application for generation of video from arbitrary virtual viewpoint. Included are respective experimental results.
