Due to occlusion among views and temporal inconsistency in depth video, spatio-temporal distortion occurs in 3D synthesized video with depth image-based rendering. In this paper, we propose a deep Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)-based synthesized video denoising algorithm to reduce temporal flicker distortion and improve perceptual quality of 3D synthesized video. First, we analyze the spatio-temporal distortion, and model eliminating spatio-temporal distortion as a perceptual video denoising problem Then, a deep learningbased synthesized video denoising network is proposed , in which a CNN-friendly spatio-temporal...
