DR Zurich Imaging and Video
The Imaging and Video group at Disney Research Zurich conducts research in all areas related to digital image and video processing. Our research interests range from basic image analysis to image-based modeling, editing, and rendering. A representative list of topics includes novel view synthesis from images, light field processing, stereoscopic video, 3D stereo reconstruction, and visual saliency analysis. Furthermore, we are interested in innovative applications of image-based technologies in the fields of 2D animation and interactive environments such as games and theme parks. The driving force behind our research is the development of new representations, algorithms, and software tools that have a direct impact on practically relevant problems for the Disney Studios, Media Networks, Interactive Studios and Imagineering.
We offer interesting thesis projects, and we are always looking for excellent students and interns at all levels. Prerequisites are self-motivation, background in graphics and/or computer vision, and strong programming skills.
