‘Holostream’ allows high-quality wireless 3-D video communications

10.01.2018 | Purdue University | www.purdue.edu

A new platform enables high-quality 3-D video communication on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets using existing standard wireless networks.

The platform, called Holostream, drastically reduces the data size of 3-D video without substantially sacrificing data quality, allowing transmission within the bandwidths provided by existing wireless networks.

Wireless 3-D data transfer

It improves the quality and expands the capabilities of popular applications already harnessing real-time 3-D data delivery, such as teleconferencing and telepresence, which uses virtual reality and other interactive technologies, allowing people to feel or appear as if they were present in a remote location.
