The topic is the problem of interactive streaming of multiview video.
Multiview video is composed of several video sequences, each corresponding to a different point of view. Interactive acces to this video requires switches from one view to another. This is problematic from the point of view of predictive coding: making prediction from one image to a second one belonging to another view is complex (all inter-view dependencies should be taken into account); independent coding is not effective. Possible solutions are based on distributed video coding.
