MPEG Immersive Video (MIV) progresses to Committee Draft
At the 131st MPEG meeting, it was decided to output the committee draft of ISO/IEC 23090-12 MPEG Immersive Video. The name was changed from “Immersive Video” to “MPEG Immersive Video” (MIV), to clearly differentiate from other uses of the term “Immersive Video” in general parlance. MIV supports compression of immersive video content, in which a real or virtual 3D scene is captured by multiple real or virtual cameras. The use of this standard enables the storage and distribution of immersive video content over existing and future networks, for playback with 6 degrees of freedom of view position and orientation.
