Mosaic streaming

Clickable personalized mosaics that open up a full screen version of the video stream that you just selected are difficult to create and give a sub-par user experience with today’s streaming technologies.

  • When the user clicks a stream, regular video streaming methods need a couple of seconds to adjust to the new situation
  • Creating mosaics with regular streaming technology requires really separate streams that are glued together on a web page or in an app.  Simultaneous playing  of these streams requires several parallel decoders, often resorting to the use of battery and compute expensive software decoding.
  • Using one decoder is possible with regular streaming technology but for every user a separate personalized mosaic needs to be created and streamed. An expensive solution.

ClearVR is a low latency optimised  streaming technology that removes these drawbacks. Check out the technology page to see how ClearVR achieves that. Since every tile can be a separate stream, and all ClearVR tiles are decoded as a single picture, only one decoder is required and easy mixing and matching of different streams can be done on the fly. Selecting a stream to view takes only tens of milliseconds (around 0,03 seconds), impossible to notice for your users. This results in an instantaneous switch to full screen of the chosen part of the mosaic in the user’s perspective.
