Abstract : Multiview acquisition, the focus of this chapter, relates to the capture of synchronized video data representing different viewpoints of a single scene. In contrast to video surveillance systems, which deploy multiple cameras to visually cover a large scale environment to be monitored with little redundancy, the materials, devices or systems used in multiview acquisition are designed to cover several perspectives of a single, often fairly restricted, physical space and use redundancy in images for specific aims. Depending on the final application, the number, layout and settings of cameras can fluctuate greatly. This chapter will introduce the main camera configurations in a purely video multiview capture context, using notable practical examples and their use. Each time, we will also propose links to databases providing access to media produced by devices within each category.
