NTT Media Intelligence Laboratories and DWANGO Co., Ltd. have jointly developed a virtual reality system that enables users to have an immersive experience visiting a remote site. This system makes it possible for users to watch video content wherever they want to watch it by using interactive streaming technology that selectively streams the user's watching section at a high bitrate in a limited network bandwidth. Applying this technology to omnidirectional video allows users to experience feelings of presence through the use of an intuitive head mount display. The system has also been released on a commercial platform and successfully streamed a real-time event. A demonstration is planned in which the details of the system and the streaming service results obtained with it will be presented.
