VR Industry Forum to present first draft of industry guidelines at IBC

Wednesday 13 September 2017 | 17:32 CET | News
The Virtual Reality Industry Forum (VRIF) will present the first draft of its guidelines at IBC 2017. The guidelines will be discussed by VRIF at a business supersession co-hosted with the DASH Industry Forum (DASH-IF) on 16 September at the RAI in Amsterdam. Attendees will be given an introduction to the guidelines and the role interoperability plays in driving a VR business ecosystem.

The initial release of the VRIF guidelines focus on the delivery ecosystem of 360-degree video with three degrees of freedom(3DOF) and will include: documentation of cross-industry interoperability points (based on ISO MPEG’s OmnidirectionalMediA Format (OMAF)); best industry practices for production of VR360 content, with an emphasis on human factors such as motion sickness; and security considerations for VR360 streaming, including user privacy and content protection.

VRIF, which has quickly grown to 40 members, liaises with Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) such as MPEG, 3GPP, DVB, and ITU to ensure any gaps or possible overlaps are identified in the guidelines.
