Christian Timmerer will present invited paper at 1st IEEE MIPR 2018 and is a guest speaker at Florida Atlantic University

,

The 1st International IEEE MIPR 2018 is held in Miami, Florida April 10-12, 2018 which is about multimedia information processing and retrieval. Christian Timmerer will present an invited paper that deals with the “automated objective and subjective evaluation of HTTP adaptive streaming systems”. This paper responds to the challenge of a plethora of media players and adaptation algorithms showing different behavior but lack a common framework for both objective and subjective evaluation of such systems. Additionally, Dr. Timmerer is a guest speaker at Florida Atlantic University (per invitation from Prof. Oge Marques) where he will present a framework for adaptive delivery of omnidirectional video. Omnidirectional or 360-degree videos are considered as a next step towards a truly immersive media experience.

Such videos allow the user to change her/his viewing direction while consuming the video. The download-and-play paradigm (including DVD and

Blu-ray) is replaced by streaming, and the content is hosted solely within the cloud. This talk addresses the need for a scientific framework enabling the adaptive delivery of omnidirectional video within heterogeneous environments.
