SES, Fraunhofer HHI demonstrate VR via satellite

Monday 5 September 2016 | 15:48 CET | News
SES, together with Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI Berlin, will demonstrate a R&D project at IBC showcasing the transmission of a 10K x 2K panoramic video signal via satellite to multiple devices. The panoramic signal will be received at the SES stand and transmitted to an Ultra HD display, as well as a set of virtual reality (VR) head-mounted devices. Filmed with Fraunhofer HHI's OmniCam-360 camera and transmitted via SES' Astra 19.2 degrees East orbital position, this demonstration will provide a first glimpse of what a future VR 360 degrees video would look like.
