ROMEO will bring new 3D media (3D multi-view video and spatial audio) to European citizens at home as well as on the move. In order to deliver the high bandwidth high quality 3D media to mobile and fixed users with guaranteed minimum Quality of Experience for all users, ROMEO will combine the DVB technology with the peer to peer (P2P) Internet technology.
In ROMEO, the broadcaster can deliver high quality stereoscopic 3D content, to the users and at the same time stream a set of supplementary 3D multi-view content (e.g. additional viewpoints with their respective spatial audio), through a master peer to the other peers on the tree. The peers can also acquire relevant information about the broadcast 3D media through other peers or other points on the Internet.
The end-point peers will also serve mobile devices with wireless access in a dedicated network, which can access the adapted and post-processed content. Peers located at the network edges will also perform various adaptations, by deploying users' equipment virtualisation layer to eliminate the need for receiver set-top boxes and complicated equipment set-up, speeding up the user take up of cost effective high quality 3D media consumption.
