Tile Based HEVC Streaming for Virtual Reality

Enabler for high quality in 360° Video Services

Only high resolution content can give a sense of immersion in VR video applications, but the large amount of data poses a challenge to common transport systems and decoders. Tile based DASH streaming with lightweight HEVC Tile Aggregation allows to easily adapt the 360° video data stream to the current user viewport. This technology allows reducing throughput and decoder requirements significantly without complex transcoding.
