TV Broadcasting Solutions Giants Join in on VR

Three giants in the world of Broadcast AV Solutions will demonstrate the latest, most reliable way to deliver best-in-class 360VR Audio and Video quality for VR/AR via streaming media at International Broadcast Conference 2017, this Sept. 15-19 in Amsterdam.

DTS, a global provider of high-definition audio solutions and now a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation, Tiledmedia, a provider of flexible and affordable, low-latency delivery of extremely high-resolution video content to consumer devices; and Viaccess-Orca, a leading global solutions provider of OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions for a personalized TV experience.

The collaborative solution can be deployed across current workflows to stream premium 360VR content to mobile devices, anywhere. Viaccess-Orca will offer demos of this new 360VR streaming solution in Hall 1, Stand 1.A51 throughout the show.

The Viaccess-Orca VO Player uses the Tiledmedia ClearVR video SDK and the DTS audio for VR SDK to deliver high-resolution VR experiences at less than a quarter the bitrate of legacy VR streaming methods with high-quality, ultra-directional, 3D audio rendering that gives the benefits of higher-order ambisonics (HOA) without needing to produce an HOA signal and carry it through the entire workflow. This offers an enhanced experience, yet maintains a backward compatible core that works with millions of deployed VR devices.

Last, but most definitely not the least, DTS audio solutions for VR enable content providers and broadcasters to deliver hi-resolution, immersive, 3D audio in a VR environment on any device that supports streaming.

This VR solution currently enables distribution to existing Android devices. It is extremely bandwidth-efficient, scalable and fully compatible with modern HTTP distribution, and no special servers or edge processing are required.
