Tuesday 20 December 2016 | 12:13 CET | News
Celeno Communications and NGCodec joined forces to deliver a wireless virtual reality (VR) platform.

At the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada on 5-8 January, 2017, experts from both companies will showcase NGCodec’s zero latency RealityCodec, H.265/HEVC video compression technology running over Celeno’s 802.11ac 5GHz Wi-Fi link for VR applications, the world’s first demo of its kind according to the companies.

NGCodec’s RealityCodec compresses the output video signal of the desktop and streams it with no latency to a mobile head-mounted display (HMD). Upgrading mobile VR to run high-end VR on a low-cost mobile HMD has wide-ranging applications and benefits not only in the consumer space, but also among enterprise customers using VR to enhance the visual quality and support untethered desktop VR experiences.

In the future, NGCodec RealityCodec and Celeno Wi-Fi will be applicable to AR & Mixed Reality (MR).
