Holostream is a novel platform which enables high-quality 3D video communication on mobile devices (e.g., iPhones, iPads) using existing standard wireless networks. The major contributions are: (1) a novel high-quality 3D video compression method that drastically reduces both 3D geometry and color texture data sizes in order to transmit them within the bandwidths provided by existing wireless networks; (2) a novel pipeline for 3D video recording, encoding, compression, decompression, visualization and interaction; and (3) a demonstration system which successfully delivered video-rate, photorealistic 3D video content through a standard wireless network to mobile devices. The novel platform improves the quality and expands upon the capabilities of popular applications already utilizing real-time 3D data delivery, such as teleconferencing and telepresence. This technology could also enable emerging applications which may require highresolution, high-accuracy 3D video data delivery, such as remote robotic surgery and telemedicine.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
