CS Forum: Zhi Liu, Shizuoka University "Optimal multi-view and VR Video multicast"
Optimal multi-view and VR Video multicast
Assistant Professor, Shizuoka University
Immersive video such as multi-view and virtual reality (VR) video provides users extraordinary viewing experience by allowing subscriber to switch viewing angle during the playback. Immersive video draws more and more attentions from both industry and academia, however, the efficient streaming of immersive video remains an open question. During this talk, I will overview the challenges and solutions towards the intelligent immersive video streaming and share some schemes we designed for the immersive video transmission. In particular, we optimally design the multicast for multi-view and VR video considering their requirements and system constraints.
