One of the merits of Free-Viewpoint TV (FTV) is to generate a scene according to the user's viewpoint. In order to generate a scene according to the user's requirements, a position in 3D space has to be defined as the viewpoint. To achieve this, we present an intelligent remote controller that locate a focus of attention for the generation of candidate viewpoints based on the theory of human visual attention. It enables a viewer to change his viewpoints with easy by providing some candidate viewpoints automatically, and also prevents the viewer from disorientation caused occasionally from 3D space navigation.
