In the paper a method for performing rectifcation of video from cameras in 3D television parallel multi-camera setups is presented. Using the camera calibration data gathered, a new coordinate system is calculated, in which virtual camera positions and orientations are calculated. A rectifying perspective transform is calculated that performs transformation from the real camera coordinate system to a new system. Transformed images correspond to images from virtual rectifed camera setup. The results obtained using the method described are verifed by com putation of depth maps using the rectifed video.
