Distributed area of interest management for large-scale immersive video conferencing

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Although video conferencing and its related applications

    have grown into a significant research area, the limited

    scalability of conference size is still a major problem. In this

    paper, a range of strategies for real-time area of interest (AOI)

    management in a 3D immersive video conference (IVC) are

    evaluated with the objective of minimising the required video

    transmission capacity and hence maximising the number of

    concurrent users. The paper shows that with judicious application

    of these techniques, the download capacity requirements

    of clients can be reduced by as much as 90% in a crowded

    virtual space.
