In this paper an approach to optimize the transmission of multiview video over bandwidth limited channels is presented. The main idea is to reduce the number of transmitted views by choosing a set of views that can be reconstructed with the highest quality at the receiver using view interpolation, removing them from the stream and encoding the remaining views with a higher quality. We have shown that at the moment this approach only makes sense in cases where the channel is very restricted, but when view interpolation algorithms improve in quality, the threshold at which our method improves image quality rises quickly and can be applied to a wider range of streaming scenarios.
