How it works

  • Distributes high-quality video only for the area being viewed while distributing low-quality video for the other areas.
  • Tiles of partial regions corresponding to viewing areas and a tile of a reduced image of the entire area are encoded in advance.
  • Smartphones receive only the optimum tile according to the viewing range, realizing both low bit rate distribution and high-quality viewing.
