      Multimedia Communications Group  
      Tile based HEVC Video for Virtual Reality  
      Fraunhofer HHI's technique for Compressed Domain Tile Aggregation drastically reduces decoder requirements for VR enabling 16K VR video to be packed in 4K resolution. Video quality and resolution is adapted on-the-fly based on user viewport without transcoding.
      Large Scale Data driven Video Analysis  
      Videos have become ubiquitous on the Internet, which profoundly increased the necessity for automatically analyzing their semantic content for vision applications such as classification, recognition, and tracking. Recently, deep learning-based methods have proved to be very successful in automatic analysis of videos.
      Advanced MPEG DASH  
      The combination of Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) with layered codecs, such as SVC and MVC opens up a wide range of possibilities for a more improved usage of network resources.
      Improved DASH over LTE  
      A novel technique, which combines LTE features with knowledge about HTTP Streaming sessions for optimization of the wireless resources. The combined optimization yields an improved transmission of videos over cellular wireless systems which are based on LTE and LTE-Advanced.
