Huawei’s VR OpenLab has released a system prototype for its E2E Cloud VR solution.
The prototype according to Huawei integrates the cloud-pipe-device ecosystem of the VR industry and builds a unified platform for various VR service scenarios.
The Huawei prototype is the first Cloud VR architecture to demonstrate E2E VR service aggregation.
Currently, VR is widely considered to be the next direction of development in the video industry.
However, many industry breakpoints have restricted the VR market in its initial phase and rendered scalability impractical. For example, many VR terminals are restricted to proprietary content channels, making it difficult for the consumer to choose which one to buy.
To bridge these breakpoints in VR development and promote the VR industrys financial prospects, Huawei has worked together with partners to launch the VR OpenLab industry cooperation plan.
According to Huawei, the goal of VR OpenLab is to construct an authentic, large-scale, and commercially available E2E Cloud VR solution.
The E2E Cloud VR system prototype according to them, is key to achieve this goal.
Huawei says, the quality of experience of its VR services is ensured through their flattened E2E bearer network and the SmartWi-Fi 300M home network solution.
It implements unified service operations and management so that multi-terminal users can share content on the cloud platform.
This system prototype does not only build a standardized industry ecosystem, but also proposes a new Cloud VR business model to promote growth of the VR industry.
The prototype decouples terminals from content, marking the evolution of the VR industry from vertical operation to horizontal operation.
This it says, lowers barriers to entry and enriches the quality of content.
The prototype also eliminates the need for wired VR headset by enabling wireless transmission and improves user experience.
This integrated cloud content solution will drive demand for gigabit home broadband services and promote further growth of the VR industry.
The Cloud VR system prototype is an important achievement for the VR OpenLab and will support a wider variety of content and terminals.
