News from Nov. 28, 2016
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.
