An innovative technology that allows ultra-high quality VR streaming, low-latency VR streaming and multiview streaming.
Tiledmedia’s technology consists of Tiledmedia Cloud and Tiledmedia Player SDK. Together, these enable three different solutions: high-quality VR streaming, Multiview Mosaic streaming and low-latency VR streaming. The technology is scalable to millions of users simultaneously over any CDN, using standard http streaming technology. No per-user edge processing required.
High-Quality VR Streaming
Streaming VR360 video is challenging; it requires a lot of bandwidth to deliver an acceptable quality video stream that is responsive to head motion. The result is usually a low-quality image or an experience that can make the user sick – or both. ClearVR tiled streaming solves these problems. Tiledmedia’s tiled streaming technology enables streaming of high quality VR360 video over existing networks with a very snappy response to head motion.
Mosaic Multiview Streaming
Mosaic Multiview streaming supports streaming live and on-demand events with multiple camera streams. It also allows the streaming of multiple unconnected events at the same time. It is the most advanced and most flexible Multiview streaming solution on the market, allowing an infinite number of streams, instant switching, and unlimited options for repositioning and resizing by the user. Going way beyond the traditional 4 streams, Mosaic not only supports rectangular video feeds, but also VR360 and VR180 – and combinations of these content types.
Low-Latency VR streaming
With Tiledmedia Cloud and Player SDK, it is also possible to deliver ultra-low-latency VR video at scale. Our low-latency VR streaming solution delivers a glass-to-glass latency in the order of 2 seconds and is able to scale to thousands or millions of viewers globally at a low cost. Tiledmedia technology makes sure all viewers are kept at the live edge and in sync, even if they would experience an occasional buffering event.
It sends 4 times as many pixels at the same bitrate of “legacy” VR, which equates to a much higher resolution and quality. Our low-latency solution allows glass-to-glass distribution in around 2 seconds.
It is the most advanced and most flexible multiview streaming solution on the market. It allows an infinite number of streams, instant switching, and unlimited options for repositioning and resizing by the user.
Supports any display device (head-mounted devices, phones, tablets, smart TVs, set-top boxes).
Enables both live and on-demand streaming.
Allows simultaneous distribution to millions of users over any CDN, using standard http streaming technology. Requires no per-user edge processing, making scaling very cost-efficient.
Reduces the amount of data by about a factor four, allowing VR streaming at bitrates comparable to normal video.
Tiledmedia’s ClearVR technology consists of a Software Development Kit – Tiledmedia Player SDK – and a cloud transcoding service – Tiledmedia Cloud. Together, these enable high-fidelity VR360 and VR180 streaming, low-latency VR streaming and multiview streaming.
Tiledmedia Player SDK is available for integration in player apps on various platforms including VR headsets and mobile devices. Tiledmedia Cloud transcodes on-demand and live VR content into the ClearVR, low-latency or multiview format and then puts it on a content delivery network of your choice, ready to be streamed.
Our experience and expertise ensure easy integration of Tiledmedia Cloud and Player SDK into your existing content delivery chain. We provide APIs, to integrate Tiledmedia Cloud with streaming systems for both live and on-demand. Tiledmedia has worked with major camera and stitching software brands like KanDao, Insta360, Black Magic Ursa, Focal PointVR, Voysys and several other bespoke camera rigs and stitchers.
Tiledmedia technology is available globally, including in mainland China. Tiledmedia Cloud is deployed across all main cloud providers (Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Alibaba Cloud). We support all major CDNs for video streaming including Akamai, Amazon CloudFront, and Wangsu. We continue to expand support for clouds and content delivery networks, ensuring the integration into our customers’ delivery chains is as smooth as possible.
Tiledmedia’s solutions rely on international standards. This makes our technology straightforward to deploy to existing devices over existing content distribution channels.
We believe in the interoperability that good standards bring. Standards benefit both consumers (things just work), our ecosystem partners (our technology is easy to integrate) and content providers (being able to rely on standards significantly reduces their cost). Relying on standards also allows us to speed up the development of new functionality, as we don’t have to reinvent any wheels.
