4 Tele-Immersive Environment (TI) Abstraction

5 TI Application Model 3D capturing 3D camera transmission D rendering user view

6 3D Camera Characteristics and their Challenges for Internet and Multimedia Systems 3D Camera RGB and Depth yield 5 Bytes per pixel Frame Size: 640x480 pixels Real-Time Capturing and Content Creation (Currently fps, Desired fps) 3D Camera needs one PC Need FireWire Bus for Cameras to get high throughput 3D Multi-camera Environment D Cameras per Room Camera Spacing Issue Different spacing for physical activity than collaborative conferencing 180 or 300 or 360 degree camera coverage

7 Data Model 3D frame for camera i at time t: f i,t Each pixel in the frame carries color+depth data and can be independently rendered Stream for camera i VS i = { f i,t1 f i,t2 … } Macro-frame F t = { f 1,t f 2,t … f n,t } TI stream TI site Camera Orientation O i … … 1n f 1,t1 f n,t1 F t1 … f 1,t2 f n,t2 F t2 VS 1 VS n TI UIUC F t1 F t2 F t3 VS 1 VS 2 VS 3

8 Implications: 4D Content Challenge Deal with Huge TI Frame Size F t Macro-frame (e.g., 10 3D Frames in one time instance) TI Frame rate Applications desire from Macro-frames per second Huge bandwidth uncompressed One 3D stream S i : 640x480 (pixels/frame) x 5 (bytes/pixel) x15 (frames/sec) = 23,040,000 bytes/second (approx. 23MBytes/sec) = 184 Mbps One TI stream TI room (e.g., 10 3D Streams): 230,040,000 bytes/sec (approx. 230MBytes/sec = 1.84 Gpbs) If we increase frame-rate, explosion of bandwidth !!!!! Slow 3D Reconstruction, 3D Modeling, 3D Rendering 71ms per frame in 3D reconstruction, … Need 3D Compression Need Parallel Processing

10 Network Characteristics and their Challenges on Internet and Multimedia Systems Heterogeneous networks/mismatch in bandwidth (LAN/WAN) LANs with 100 Mbps Ethernet cards and Gigabit Ethernet switch WAN Internet2 network with a 100 Mbps bottleneck link between UIUC and UC Berkeley Varying Internet2 bandwidth depending on the time of the day TCP/IP Protocol Stack due to large packet sizes, hence smaller context switching overhead No Real-time/no QoS capabilities in Internet2 or OS running TCP/IP stack

11 Implications: Timing Challenges Internet WAN LAN 1 2 N2 N 1 Tsend(i) FiFi Need Multi-stream Coordination Synchronization of multiple stream Synchrony at frame capturing time Spacing at Fj’s sending time Jitter control at Fj’s receiving time Skew control at rendering/display time Deal with limited buffering at IP routers TCP/IP retransmission delays different end-to-end (LAN/WAN) delays

12 Implications: Distributed Operating System Challenges Deal with Large scale of cameras/displays  Camera/Display PCs are distributed over LAN and WAN networks  PCs are multi-core Real-Time Processing (3D Reconstruction, Rendering)  Consider between D streams with frame rate of 10 fps and render them into one 4D stream with 10 fps  Run rendering station at fps with 640x480 pixels per frame Need Configuration/coordination of various 3D/4D services in a flexible and effective manner Software synchronization protocols with approximate hardware accuracy Portable and easy deployable distributed TI/OS services Low maintenance OS services Real-Time OS services on multi-core architectures

13 Implications: Networking Challenges Deal with Large Bandwidth Demand  One 3D stream: 23MBytes/sec  One TI (e.g., 10 3D Streams): 230MBytes/sec) Real-Time Communication for Interactivity  millisecond interactive delay Need Multi-stream Coordination  due to large bursts at routers, need packet spacing Smart Delay/Bandwidth Management over Best Effort Internet Synchronization of Multiple Streams  need to send all streams within a constrained time interval so that rendered frame can be done in timely fashion Dealing with Scale  multi-party / many-to-many multicast forest protocols (camera arrays, participants, microphone arrays, …)

19 Multi-Camera Stream Selection (1) Determine which streams are of interest given the current user view The color portion of a macro-frame (Photo courtesy of Sang-Hack Jung.)

20 Multi-Camera Stream Selection (2) View-based approach Free view selection is a key feature of 3D video User selects view Reasonable to use the user view as the major QoS control feedback Adaptation based on the contribution of each 3D stream to the current user view Metric: Contribution factor based on the angle between the camera and the user view

21 View-aware Stream Differentiation (3) 3D capturing D camera transmission D rendering user view streams contributing more to user view less important streams

22 user viewing direction camera direction source: Angle θ Stream Selection (4)

23 user viewing direction camera direction source: Angle θ View Model s.fov v.w

24 View-aware Stream Differentiation Differentiation function df(s, v) = s.fov · v.w (dot product of unit vectors) When s.fov and v.w are unit vectors, the dot product gives cos  where  is the angle between s.fov and v.w Therefore, if s.fov and v.w are close, df(s, v) is close to 1. Otherwise, df(s, v) goes to -1. Select streams with df > T (T being threshold) of – optimization function for selected view across multiple parties of(S’,v) =  s  S’ df(s,v)

25 Differentiating Factor Metric (df) 3D capturing D camera transmission D rendering User/node’s view request v.w streams contributing more to user view s.fov for S4 s.fov for S5 less important streams df(S4,v) = s.fov (S4)*v.w df(S5,v) = s.fov(S5)*v.w of(S,v) = df(S4,v)+df(S5,v)

26 ViewCast (VC) – Problem Formulation Minimum Quality Problem Satisfy  v i  V  of(R i, v i )   Subject to system constraints NP-hard Maximum Quality Problem Maximize  i of(R i,v i ) Subject to system constraints NP-hard

27 VC – General Guideline Minimum quality guarantee: each renderer should receive a minimum set of streams if possible View change resilience: when user view is changed, the impact on other affected nodes should be minimized

29 stream selection bandwidth allocation VS 1 fs A1A1 VS 2 VS i fs Ai'Ai' AmAm … VS j … … VS N   TFS quality Bandwidth Allocation (1)

30 Bandwidth Allocation (2) Frame size allocation TFS : target macro-frame size estimated by the underlying streaming control Given macro-frame F t and TFS, allocate the frame size (A i ) for each frame (f i,t ) Priority scheme based on CF

31 Bandwidth Allocation (3) Frame size allocation A i is allocated in descending order of CF fs: frame size of 3D frame If else

32 Streaming Control (1) Basic end-to-end protocol sender receives bandwidth allocation generates token = ((VS 1, A 1 ), (VS 2, A 2 ), …, (VS N, A N )) passes token along camera clusters receiver maintains periodic timer for rendering at fixed interval monitors the deadline of each macro-frame when the last frame of current macro-frame received at T  calculate the difference between T and deadline  send the difference back to sender

33 Network deadline T macro-frame (after adaptation) streaming control streaming control e(t) = deadline  T bandwidth allocation token

43 Experiment Setup Counterpart for comparison, MC–n A multicast-based scheme where n streams (n =1, 2, 3, or 4) must be retrieved to serve a view. Otherwise, the view request is rejected. No preemption.

45 Rejection Ratio CR = 100%, I i (O i ) = 24 MC–4 MC–3 MC–2 MC–1 VC

46 Streams/View CR = 100%, I i (O i ) = 24 average 3.2 better than MC–3 performance but with 22% less rejection ratio
