Companies in Discussion to Create VR Production Standards

Thierry Fautier, Harmonic’s VP of Video Strategy, rounds up virtual reality’s biggest announcements and breakthroughs so far in 2016, and explains the steps being taken to create a VR standard.

“As a result of the momentum in VR, there are now a group of companies that have started discussing the formation of a ‘VR Video Forum,’ that would define guidelines of an end-to-end VR system for live & on demand distribution,” he writes. “Harmonic is part of this group, which had an informal meeting at CES, with another planned at NAB to solidify the directive. In parallel, the DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) group has launched a study on VR video, which Harmonic is an active participant in.”
