Abstract: The broadcast industry is moving future Digital Television towards Super high resolution TV (4k or 8k) and/or 3D TV. This ultimately will increase the demand on data rate and subsequently the demand for highly efficient codecs. One of the techniques that researchers found it one of the promising technologies in the industry in the next few years is 3D Integral Image and Video due to its simplicity and mimics the reality, independently on viewer aid, one of the challenges of the 3D Integral technology is to improve the compression algorithms to adequate the high resolution and exploit the advantages of the characteristics of this technology. The research scope of this thesis includes designing a novel coding for the 3D Integral image and video compression. Firstly to address the compression of 3D Integral imaging the research proposes novel entropy coding which will be implemented first on 2D traditional images content in order to compare it with the other traditional common standards then will be applied on 3D Integra image and video. This approach seeks to achieve high performance represented by high image quality and low bit rate in association with low computational complexity. Secondly, new algorithm will be proposed in an attempt to improve and develop the transform techniques performance, initially by using a new adaptive 3D-DCT algorithm then by proposing a new hybrid 3D DWT-DCT algorithm via exploiting the advantages of each technique and get rid of the artifact that each technique of them suffers from. Finally, the proposed entropy coding will be further implemented to the 3D integral video in association with another proposed algorithm that based on calculating the motion vector on the average viewpoint for each frame. This approach seeks to minimize the complexity and reduce the speed without affecting the Human Visual System (HVS) performance. Number of block matching techniques will be used to investigate the best block matching technique that is adequate for the new proposed 3D integral video algorithm.
