In this talk, we focus on the special requirements imposed by 3D video/TV applications on stereo analysis
techniques. In order to compute high-quality depth maps that allow the subsequent rendering of realistic novel
views, the precise 3D reconstruction of object contours and the proper treatment of associated "mixed pixels" are
gaining importance. We sketch the principle ideas of stereo matching algorithms developed recently by our group,
with an eye to 3D content generation for novel (auto)stereoscopic displays.
