Recent advancements on 3D video generation, processing, compression and rendering increase accessibility to 3D video content. However, the majority of 3D displays available on the market belong to the stereoscopic display class and require users to wear special glasses in order to perceive depth. In difference, autostereoscopic displays can render multiple views without any additional equipment. The depth perception on stereoscopic and autostereoscopic displays is realized via a binocular depth cue called stereopsis. Another important depth cue, that is not exploited by autostereoscopic displays, is motion parallax which is a monocular cue. To enable the motion parallax effect on the 2D display we propose to use the Kinect sensor to estimate head pose of the viewer. Based on the head pose, the rendering system is able to synthesize the corresponding view from the 3D video stream. The real-time view synthesis software adjusts the view and creates the motion parallax effect on the 2D display. We believe that the proposed solution can enhance the content displayed on digital signature displays, kiosks and other advertisement media where many users observe the content during move and use of the glasses-based 3D displays is not possible or too expensive.
