One approach for stereoscopic video compression is to down sample the content prior to encoding and up sample it to the original spatial resolution after decoding. In this study it is shown that the ratio by which the content should be rescaled is sequence dependent. Hence, a frequency based method is introduced enabling fast and accurate estimation of the best down sampling ratio for different stereoscopic video clips. It is shown that exploiting this approach can bring 3.38% delta bitrate reduction over five camera-captured sequences.
