Application Areas

  • Radio Signal Propogation and Processing
  • Compression and Data Management Techniques

Quick Pitch

We propose to develop a system delivering immersive 3D video on mobile platform, with applications in gaming, e-commerce, entertainment


The prominence of 3D video technology has skyrocketed. The 2009 movie Avatar in 3D became the highest grossing movie of all time. Such a movie requires left and right views of a scene. Many video games which provide a 3D experience require multiple views of a scene. Such data is costly to store and to transmit. This project studies how to efficiently compress multiple-view video data, how to allow the scene to be viewed from any angle at different levels of precision, and how to reliably transmit the data over mobile wireless channels. This project has important applications in consumer electronics, e-commerce, entertainment, health care, science, and education.

  • William LuApril 25, 2012 at 3:01pm

    Amazing idea! Being able to compress 3D data for mobile platforms is very applicable not only in the mobile media. I could see this applied to surgery, allowing doctors to view the patient's insides in real time 3D.
