The Visual Media Group,
Centre for Vision Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP)
University of Surrey, UK.
This is your chance to join a leading-edge research project lead by BBC Research and Development to develop new free-viewpoint video technology for broadcast and games production.
The Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) has pioneered free-viewpoint video for studio production. This project aims to realise free-viewpoint video production of live events such as football or athletics. The challenge is to achieve high-quality production for sports with rapid movement, unconstrained lighting and limited camera views. Systems will be developed jointly with the BBC to demonstrate the potential of free-viewpoint video in both broadcast production and for highly realistic interactive rendering in games.
You will have a degree in computer science, engineering, physics or mathematics as well as first-class mathematical, analytic and programming skills. Post-graduate level applications will be given the opportunity to study for a PhD in the UK employed on a collaborative project with the BBC. Post-doctoral research fellows should have completed their PhD in a relevant area, have experience in computer graphics, vision and video with a track-record of international publications. Senior research fellows with extensive experience and a strong track-record of international journal publication may be appointed on the RAII scale.
For further information about the group and its state-of-the-art HD studio facilities for multiple view video capture please go to http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/CVSSP/. Informal enquiries may be directed to Professor Adrian Hilton a.hilton at surrey.ac.uk
The post is for a fixed 3 year term (commencing 1st January 2006).
