Blue Man Group Visits Tiledmedia Demo

At a very successful NAB Show, we showed 8k VR content streaming off Akamai’s CDN at 14 Mbit/s. Everyone liked the demo, but especially those that are in the business of distributing VR content were highly impressed. “This is awesome” and “I’m blown away with your quality – I need a demo in my lab!” were just two quotes from major content providers.

The Blue Man Group stopped by, turning the Harmonic Booth into a chaos and playing with the demo. See the pictures!

Meet us NAB

Tiledmedia will showcase its technology at NAB2017 in Las Vegas, from 24 through 27 April. We’ll show our technology at the Harmonic booth, South Hall, Upper Level, Booth 1210.

Send an email to hi at tiledmedia dot com if you are interested in a demonstration!

We’ll also have a joint paper “Streaming UHD-Quality VR at Realistic Bitrates: Mission Impossible?” with Harmonic in the conference. The talk is on Monday 24 April at noon, in room N260 (North Hall); more details are here.

 

Moved to a new office

On March 24, we moved into our new office in the historic “Industriegebouw” in Rotterdam. Our move signals the start of a new phase for tiledmedia. Our focus for April is going to be on preparing for NAB, and on getting the many parties that want to evaluate our technology up and running.

Come see us at CES

Together with our partners Viaccess-Orca and Harmonic, we will show our tiled VR streaming magic at CES, in Las Vegas, from 5 to 8 January.
