Although a significant research effort has been carried out for investigating 3 Dimensional (3D) video display, transmission, coding, etc, the same is not applicable for 3D video adaptation. In addition, ambient illumination, spatial resolution and 3D video content related contexts have not been particularly considered in a hybrid manner for the 3D video adaptation purpose in literature to date. In this paper, an adaptation decision taking technique is designed to predict the bit rate of 3D video sequences to be adapted by a proposed adaptation model. The ambient illumination condition of the viewing environment is considered in these proposed technique and model together with spatial resolution, video quality, and depth perception related contexts of the 3D video. Experimental results derived by the assistance of subjective experiments prove that the proposed model is quite efficient to adapt the 3D video sequences without compromising the 3D video perception of the users.
