Reconstruction of HDR Videos using Multiple Camera Setups

Dataset LMS Pillars:

Artificially created and rendered video sequence using Blender. It consists of 2 camera views with 54 frames each. Furthermore, every frame is available in 7 different exposures. The spatial resolution of each frame is 960×540 pixel.

  • First frame of the LDR video for the left camera view:
  • First frame of the LDR video for the right camera view:
  • First frame of the tone-mapped HDR video obtained from combining the left and right camera view:

Dataset IIS Jumble:

This dataset of a static scene has been acquired using a motorized XY translation stage and comprises 15 camera views (5×3). For each view, 5 different exposures as well as a calibration image are available. The spatial resolution of each image is 2560×1920 pixel.

For downloading the files, please scroll to the end of the page.

 

  • Example for the left camera view. View 12 with normal exposure after rectification:
  • Example for the right camera view. View 13 with lower exposure after rectification:
  • Tonemapped HDR image which has been computed using the left and right camera view:
