To properly evaluate the performance of 360VRspecific encoding and transmission schemes, and particularly of the solutions based on viewport adaptation, it is necessary to consider not only the bandwidth saved, but also the quality of the portion of the scene actually seen by users over time. With this motivation, we propose a robust, yet flexible methodology for accurately assessing the quality within the viewport along the visualization session. This procedure is based on a complete analysis of the geometric relations involved.

UGC vs. Premium: Is the video valuation bubble big enough to burst?

Article | May 21, 2021

The market disconnect between the proliferation of independent content creators and the consolidation of brand IP into the hands of ever-fewer major players is growing increasingly stark. On the one hand, independent artists are the fastest-growing sector of the music market. User-generated content (UGC) has proved a huge success during lockdown for the likes of TikTok and Roblox.
