News from Nov. 28, 2016
Louay Bassbouss of our business unit FAME won an award for his paper “High Quality 360° Video Rendering and Streaming”. At NEM Summit 2016, it was awarded as best paper.
The NEM Summit took place from November 23 to 24, 2016 in Porto. Louay Bassbouss' paper “High Quality 360° Video Rendering and Streaming” won the award as best paper of the conference. He is researcher working at the FOKUS business unit FAME – Future Applications and Media.
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.
