Bringing live 3D visual communication into web browsers.

In the�What's Next�area at�MWC 2013�we have demonstrated the next generation of video communication:�3D visual communication. We received very positive feedback, as everybody could see how the prototype provides a level of immersion, a feeling of 'being there', that current video conferencing systems cannot provide.

Today, we are excited to announce that we have brought 3D visual communication into web browsers. This was realized based on technologies such as WebRTC, allowing any browser implementing them to transmit, receive and display 3D videos from potentially any kind of device (stationary computer, smartphone, tablets, etc.).

We have set up two different demonstrations, one with stereoscopic 3D video, and one with 3D video with associated depth map.

Stereoscopic 3D video

The first demonstration consisted of two browser-based clients calling each other in a peer-to-peer configuration. The clients were running browsers based on Chromium and Ericsson H.264/AVC encoder/decoder implementations. One client was connected to a stereo HD video camera and was transmitting the two views of the stereo camera. An example of such a frame is depicted in�our previous blog post, and its anaglyph version is given as illustration in the following image (use your old-school anaglyph 3D glasses�to get the 3D!).
