Immersive visual experiences are being demanded in many applications, from entertainment to medical applications. In this context, Light Field (LF) technology is being explored to provide solutions in some areas. Despite the ability of LF cameras to capture 3D information from a scene in a single shot, an enormous amount of data is generated, causing serious challenges in terms of processing and transmission. This lecture intends to present the technologies of acquisition and display of light fields, representation and encoding of data, as well as some applications.
