Facebook’s Dynamic Streaming Video for Gear What Every VR Platform Needs

Published by , February 28, 2016 7:16 pm

(Engadget) Facebook recently announced dynamic streaming technology for the Gear VR that makes adjustments on the fly as the user’s head moves around the scene. It does this by using several copies of a video in multiple resolutions to create the highest-quality version possible, while video on the periphery is lower-quality.
It’s the sort of thing that every other VR platform will want, so now the question is whether Facebook will ever license it out.
