    Talk Title: Towards Robust and Resource-efficient Immersive Content Streaming

    Series: Computer Science Colloquium

    Abstract: Compared to delivering regular 2D videos, streaming immersive content such as 360-degree panoramic videos, volumetric videos, and virtual/mixed reality (VR/MR) content presents distinct challenges due to their intensive network and compute resource consumption. In this talk, I will detail our team's journey over the past five years to boost the robustness, resource efficiency, and user experience of immersive content streaming. Our high-level design principles include adapting to the network & compute resources, integrating viewers' motion patterns, and harnessing the power of AI through edge computing. Backed up with real prototype implementation and field trials, our efforts make it feasible to stream high-quality immersive content to commodity mobile devices such as untethered smartphones and entry-level VR/MR headsets.
