Job Description

We are seeking 15 candidates for PhD positions across Europe in Multimedia, Optics, Visual Communication, Audio-Visual, Visual Computing, Computer Graphics and Human Vision.

RealVision (http:/www.realvision-itn.eu) invites candidates with a background in one of the areas Image Processing, Physics, Computer Science, Communication to Psychology and Vision Science.

RealVision (Hyper-REAListic VISual Experience) is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European H2020 programme and will focus on innovation in the area of hyper-realistic imaging, encoding and display technologies.

We offer extensive knowledge of stages in the visual processing chain, including acquisition, processing, coding, delivery, and display, and the opportunity to achieve a common goal of building the hyper-realistic visual imaging and display systems of the future.
The research and development in RealVision will give extremely high quality, hyper-realistic visual experience.

The specific projects are:
1. Objective quality metrics and perceptual tools for free viewpoint TV (UN)
2. Perceptual representation for volumetric video objects (UN)
3. View extraction and coding for light field imaging (CNRS)
4. HDR video tone mapping for consumer cameras (DxO)
5. Hyper-realistic display (UCAM)
6. Redundancy in perceptual cues to scene structure and realism (UCAM)
7. Perceptual compensation of temporal latency in interactive displays (UCAM)
8. The role of focus cues in improving perceived realism in stereoscopic 3D imagery (BU)
9. Exploiting personal differences in vision to maximise colour experience from displays (UOXF)
10. Surface light field quality metric (MPG) – closed.
11. Multi-camera disparity estimation and 3D reconstruction for perception-based view-synthesis (FHG)
12. Towards plenoptic measurements of displays and test viewing (DTU)
13. Light field coding and processing for view sequences (DTU)
14. Impact of audio rendering systems on Audio-Visual (AV) experience of immersiveness (BEO)
15. Perceptual evaluation of immersive video quality (FORCE)

The starting dates of the PhD projects are expected to be in 2018. Please contact the RealVision consortium members for more details:
