TIAN Dong has been working in the field of image /video compression and processing for over 10 years. He got deeply involved in several standardizations related to video coding in MPEG since 2002. For example, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (2002), its extension for multiview video (MVC 2005), MPEG 3DV AHG (2007) and MPEG 3D-HEVC (2011). He was among the most active members and continuous contributors for the standard groups and served as leaders in various sub-groups. His main contributions for the standardization include developing new coding techniques for improved coding effiency, robust transmission, 3D video, etc. In addition, Dong's secondary research field is on display processing toward next generation of 3D displays.

      Dong works as a Principal Member Research Staff at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) at Boston from 2010, Senior Member Technical Staff at Thomson Corporate Research at Princeton between 2005 and 2010, and Post-doc Researcher at Tampere University of Technology

/Nokia Research Center at Finland from 2002. Dong completed his Doctor study at BJUT in 2001, Master and Bachelor's degreee from USTC in 1998 and 1995, respectively.


 In this talk, Dong will present the recent progress on 3D video coding and distribution. After a quick review on 3D display technique and existing technologies, the trend and new capabilities of next generation of 3D video application will be discussed. The relative work within MPEG standard groups would be highlighted. In addition, a technique used to enable advanced 3D display from our recent work could be demonstrate.
