Release of FVVLib 1.0.0 beta 2 – The Free-Viewpoint Video Library

October 25, 2011 | Written by Stefan

Today Voxelogram released version 1.0.0 beta 2 of FVVLib, a software library for reading Voxelogram’s ‘Free-Viewpoint Video’ (FVV) file format. Using FVVLib you can access the data in FVV files for use in your own application.

The intention of this beta release is to allow people to freely experiment with free-viewpoint video technology, integrate it with their own technology and to produce technical demos, presentations and videos. This way the technology can be made more widely recognized and adopted and new development ideas and usage scenarios can emerge. For example, you could use FVV data in a game application without the need to model 3D data. It is also possible to develop educational software to teach complex motion with FVV data.

Please share your ideas for using FVV data with us by using our survey form or sending an email to We would be very happy to hear any suggestions, ideas, questions, feature requests or any other kind of feedback from you. This will give us more insight and new ideas on how people want to use free-viewpoint video technology and will guide future development.
