NOSSDAV Keynote: Smart Streaming of Panoramic Video

Prof. Dah Ming Chiu | Research Professor of Chinese University of Hong Kong

Abstract: Due to recent advances in VR and AR technology and applications, more and more videos streamed on-line become 360 degree and 3D. This creates new challenges for video streaming when bandwidth is limited. Besides adapting video resolution to bandwidth, there is also opportunity to adapt what to stream to user attention, or content creator's wish for focus. This opens up exciting opportunities for interesting research. We will describe some existing work (industry seems to be leading the way in this space), and discuss our own efforts.
