Understanding visual attention in 3DTV is essential for many applications, e.g., capture, coding, visual confort enhancement, 2D-to-3D conversion, retargeting, and subtitling. Therefore, public datasets of 3D content with associated ground truth eye tracking data are needed. To overcome the lack of publicly available 3D video eye tracking datasets, we created the EyeC3D dataset. Eight stereoscopic video sequences were used in the eye tracking experiments. For each video, eye movement data was recorded via a set of subjective experiments. From the eye movement data, the fixation density maps (FDMs) were computed for each frame of the stereoscopic video sequences. Eight stereoscopic video sequences were used in the eye tracking experiments. Five sequences (Boxers, Hall, Lab, News report, and Phone call) were obtained from the NAMA3DS1 database. Two sequences (Musicians and Poker) were obtained from the European FP7 Research Project MUSCADE. Sequence Poznan Hall2 was obtained from the Poznan multiview video database.


You can download all lists of fixation points and fixation density maps from the following FTP (please use dedicated FTP clients, such as FileZilla or FireFTP): Coming soon!
