NYU Breaks New Ground in 3D Video Technology with $1.2M Grant

Innovative Project Aims to Revolutionize Dance Education and Beyond, Overcoming Streaming Challenges of Point-Cloud Video

The New York University (NYU) has launched a project aimed at developing a new 3D video technology. This project is primarily focused on its application in dance education and potentially other fields.

The project is supported by a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation, spread over four years. The goal is to make Point-Cloud Video (PCV) technology suitable for streaming.

PCV represents an advanced form of 3D video technology, which provides viewers with the ability to virtually navigate an immersive video environment, interact with objects, and explore scenes from various angles and distances, replicating a physical presence.

Currently, the streaming of PCV poses a challenge due to its high bandwidth and computational demands. The NYU Tandon project is dedicated to overcoming these challenges by optimizing bandwidth usage, reducing delivery latency, and improving energy efficiency.
