In this paper, we focus on the problem of how to visualize and browse 3D videos and 3D images in a media browser application, running on a 3D-enabled mobile device with an autostereoscopic display. We propose a 3D thumbnail representation format and an algorithm for automatic 3D thumbnail generation from a 3D video + depth content. Then, we present different 3D user interface layout schemes for 3D thumbnails, and discuss these layouts with the focus on their usability and ergonomics. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
