Multiview Media Transmission Algorithm for Next Generation Networks

Conference paper

Abstract

It has been widely recognized that multi-view video coding (MVC) is one of the key technologies for a wide variety of future interactive media applications, e.g. 3D television over next generation networks. Due to the large data volume, transmission the multi-view media requires much more bandwidth than traditional media. Consequently, how to efficiently compress multi-view media becomes more important than any other data. This paper proposes an efficient algorithm for Multiview Media Transmission over Next Generation Networks. The proposed approach is detailed examined through extensive simulations. Both subjective and objective visual quality comparative study demonstrates that the proposed approach outperforms the conventional approach.
