VR360 Video

Media Lab's VR360 solutions provide immersive 360-degree video experiences for multiple platforms such as mobile phones and VR headsets. With world-class bandwidth reduction with our video algorithms and easy development with our player SDK, Media Lab provides a complete solution for the most mesmerizing VR video experiences.

  • Panoramic Stitching

    Video data taken by different cameras are seamlessly spliced by our optical flow algorithm to form a seamless spherical panoramic video along with balanced exposure. Our solution supports up to 8K videos per camera.

  • Play Rendering

    Craft an elegant user experience with our player SDK to decode and render high-quality immersive video with minimal 360° picture distortion.

  • Tiled Transmission

    Spherical 360-degree video up to 8K resolution is segmented into tiles with our specially designed encoder. When a user plays back the tiled format, the user device with our player SDK will only render the area that the user is looking at and adapts in real-time as the user moves their view. Tiled transmission provides immersive 8K quality at reduced bandwidth even on mobile devices.
