In the paper, we propose a new method for the virtual view synthesis called as Multiview Synthesis. In our approach, virtual views are synthesized using two neighboring real views, but the disoccluded areas are not inpainted, but filled by the information from the further real views – additional views, traditionally not included in the view synthesis. The whole synthesis is performed with triangles rather than with individual pixels. In the proposed Multiview Synthesis, additional steps of adaptive color correction, blurred edge removal and spatial edge blurring are also included. The experimental results show that both the objective and subjective quality of the synthesized views is significantly higher than the quality of views obtained using the state-of-the-art MPEG reference view synthesis software.
