SPINVR: TOWARDS LIVE-STREAMING 3D VIRTUAL REALITY VIDEO
Streaming of 360° content is gaining attention as an immersive way to remotely experience live events. However live capture is presently limited to 2D content due to the prohibitive computational cost associated with multi-camera rigs. In this work we present a system that directly captures streaming 3D virtual reality content. Our approach does not sufer from spatial or temporal seams and natively handles phenomena that are challenging for existing systems, including refraction, relection, transparency and speculars. Vortex natively captures in the omni-directional stereo (ODS) format, which is widely supported by VR displays and streaming pipelines. We identify an important source of distortion inherent to the ODS format, and demonstrate a simple means of correcting it.    DOWNLOAD
