A Smart Virtual Reality Reference Implementation with Intel® Smart Edge Open
5G and Edge Computing trigger a considerable revolution in media services enabling real-time interactive services for new experience such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). Intel® Smart Edge Open enables new immersive media experience at the edge offering:
• 5G cloud native network services
• SW infrastructure for microservices-based service creation
• Real-Time Communication (RTC) as a Service through Intel Open WebRTC Toolkit (OWT)
• Microservices for Media Ingestion, Control (e.g., real-time transcoding, stitching, content overlay) and Distribution
• Acceleration for HEVC encoding with Motion Constraint Tile Set (MCTS) through Intel® SVT-HEVC
• 3D frames analytics in real-time through OpenVINO™ to build metadata for the scenes
A Smart VR reference implementation is provided to enable real-time video streaming from multiple cameras over 5G with real-time 360 scene construction and 360 frame analytics at the edge for generating insights on the scene. It is considered greatly useful in sports events/venues, entertainment, and new tourism experience, eSurgery, and eEducation. Intel® Smart Edge Open optimizes the on-boarding of diverse microservices as RTC aaS through Intel OWT, real-time frames analytics through Intel OpenVINO™, 360 media acceleration through Intel® SVT-HEVC, abstracts the underlying HW complexity to developers, and allows modular deployment for media ingestion, control, and distribution functions that can take place as co-located microservices or distributed microservices across multiple edge platforms.
