Title: Internet-by-design audio-visual media for sport and live entertainment
Abstract: Recently, the object-based way increases the importance, where the media data is decoupled to the audio-visual data and 3D meta-data, which represents the multiple objects exist in the 3D space and transmitted in the remote place for the reproduction of the 3D space. This enables the flexible and possibly interactive reproduction that adapts to the receiver’s configuration including head mount display (HMD), 3D TV, and 3D audio systems. In 2014, we established and chaired the Software Defined Media (SDM) Consortium (http://sdm.wide.ad.jp/) to research and discuss the business possibilities of Internet audio-visual media as a hub to promote fusion interdisciplinary study between academia and industry.
In this talk, we present our activities about SDM covering both academic achievement and business trials. Also, we discuss the current common technical issues in the business domain and the future direction.
