Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs

Optimized 3DTV Cloud Experiences

This demonstration shows the research results of the ongoing 3dtv2.0 project, a collaborative project between Bell Labs and iMinds (MMLAB). It investigates 3 key aspects related to remote rendering of 3D applications.  First we study the impact of stereoscopic content on the render aspect of the Alcatel-Lucent Entertainment Cloud Platform. Second, GPU-assisted 3D video coding for optimizing the encoding, exploiting information from a 3D rendering engine. Third, we investigate how to deliver the main 3DTV delivery models on legacy set-top boxes. We found depth calibration to be crucial to have an optimal quality 3DTV video streaming experience from the Cloud towards a plethora of 3D capable client devices with different resolutions and supporting different 3D technologies.
