Patent Number: 8,879,840

Title: Image processor, image processing method, and program for shift-changing depth data of an image

Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes circuitry configured to encode image data and depth data according to a predetermined encoding system and configured to perform both rate control of a code generation amount from encoding the image data and rate control of a code generation amount from encoding the depth data. The circuitry is also configured to shift-change the depth data based on a difference between the bit depth of the depth data and the bit depth of the image data.
