Volumetric video : upcoming tools from creation to distribution and rendering

Volumetric video creation and distribution has been developed since many years starting from light field capture and processing initiatives.

All technologies supporting the pipeline have matured and bring to the creative community new tools to create and edit real volumetric video scenes.

In addition, distribution frameworks can now rely on upcoming standardization efforts from main video distribution stakeholders.

During this session, Interdigital will present a creative initiative joining technologists and creative energies to create a new volumetric video content. A short making off video will depict specificities of such content shooting.

The session will then provide insights on capture essential technology bricks, present the 2021 upcoming volumetric video distribution standard (MPEG Immersive Media format), and provide an update on AI based technologies supporting such content processing.

Rendering videos will demonstrate our unity based delivery framework supporting this workflow.

The session will be presented by our volumetric video experts who will be delighted to discuss with the audience on their respective topics.


Valérie Allié, Research Technical Area Leader, InterDigital

Valérie leads the Digital Holography research group developing technologies for new immersive experiences to render natural and CG content with proper sensation of depth, parallax and natural refocusing.

This research group develops new video formats, associated content processing techniques and innovative nanophotonic components to serve future MR glasses-based experiences

She has a long-term experience in research labs management. She has also spent 5 years in technology transfer and licensing.érie-allié
