Award for paper on 360° Video Streaming

News from Nov. 28, 2016

Louay Bassbouss of our business unit »Future Applications and Media – FAME« won an award for his paper »High Quality 360° Video Rendering and Streaming«. The NEM Summit 2016 chose it as best paper.
The NEM Summit, that took place from November 23-24, 2016 in Porto, awarded the paper »High Quality 360° Video Rendering and Streaming« by Louay Bassbouss as best paper of the conference.

The paper addresses the efficient streaming of high quality 360° video content using existing content delivery networks (CDNs) and without the need for additional bandwidth comparing to traditional video streaming. Furthermore, it describes how to display 360° content even on devices with limited processing resources and programmatic capabilities

These research findings are implemented in the Fraunhofer FOKUS Cloud-based 360° Video Playout. It enables the display of high quality 360° video on HbbTV and mobile devices. With respect to the transfer of the entire 360° video, the data rate required for this is reduced by cloud-based rendering to a fraction. Thus, high quality 360° video content can be streamed on low capability devices without any latency.
