25 – 28 February, Barcelona, Spain
ClearVR is already a very good fit with 4G, but with 5G, the user experience gets even better. We’ll be demonstrating this in the Intel and Ciena booths at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. CEO Frits Klok and CBO Rob Koenen will be in Barcelona for meetings on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 February.
At Intel’s booth, Hall 3 Stand 3E31, we show a live end-to-end architecture with encoding based on Intel’s open source SVT-HEVC encoder, with the delivery supported by an Intel-based streaming server and Intel’s Mobile Edge Technology for caching tiled content close to the user. The result is a live workflow that can deliver 8k VR with super-fast responses to head motion and handheld swiping – it’s so fast that users could never tell they are only receiving the viewport, and not the entire 8k video.

At Ciena’s booth, Hall 2 Stand 2J51, we work with market leaders Ciena, Akamai, Affirmed Networks, Equinix, and Wind River to showcase how to implement an 8k video-friendly network environment that capitalizes on edge compute/cloud. The demo leverages Ciena’s Blue Planet intelligent automation platform to automate wireless infrastructure via a dynamic and virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) from Affirmed Networks and edge compute capabilities from Wind River’s Titanium Cloud. Ciena automates video content delivery over a reliable, agile, and scalable virtual Content Delivery Network (vCDN) from Akamai, featuring 8k Virtual Reality (VR) video powered by our ClearVR technology video. The demo is enabled via Equinix’s network by leveraging their Macro Edge, Cloud Exchange Fabric, NFVI, and future Micro Edge capabilities.
