Abstract:

The delivery of 3D immersive entertainment to the home remains a highly challenging problem due to the large amount of data involved. As the number of views increases, current systems will struggle to meet the demanding requirements for many 2D/3D display devices.

DIOMEDES will focus on new methods for delivery and compression of multi-view video and multi-channel audio. The solution proposed by DIOMEDES is to develop a QoE aware Peer-to-Peer (P2P) distribution system, which will be designed jointly with a Multiple Description Scalable Multi-view Video plus Depth (MD-SMVD) codec.

The DIOMEDES system will have the following features:

  • 3D Quality of Experience (QoE) and 3D audio-visual attention modelling to ensure that human perception is considered during optimization of 3D media delivery, and during adaptation to network resource availability;
  • Joint compression format and P2P overlay design a P2P 3D media distribution system that can be throttled by Internet Service Providers (ISPs), while preserving basic service capability;
  • Joint use of broadcast and IP networks for 3D media delivery content accessible by a combination of DVB-T, P2P, and a 3D media IPTV streaming server; Users will make their own content available, and will be able to download other users content via P2P;
  • Components will be developed to allow registration of users, control access to content, and carry out content integrity checks;
  • 3D media adaptation a decision engine will be developed based on the QoE and attention modelling research so that the content can be adapted to varying bandwidths and displays; Real-time rendering of multi-view content for light field displays, and real-time rendering of spatial audio for reduced complexity Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) systems;

The technologies developed within DIOMEDES will be demonstrated in the form of an integrated test bed. The results of the project will be beneficial to the European media industry as well as to end-users.

 Projects General
  
 
The company won important national and EU grants that allowed to accelerate the R&D work to create the next generation high-resolution monitor type display and a wall-size 3D projector system. Holografika`s research team has actively been involved in the continuous development of the theory and practice of real-time holographic displays. Along with the technologies used in the successive 3D display generations the company has started to develop related 3D technologies, like 3D acquisition, 3D compression and possible 3D formats.
